Shall we dance?

The new challenge over at Papertake Weekly is a sketch -  the design team have made some fabulous projects to inspire you and there is a lovely prize to win!

I stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured the gorgeous dancing bears from LOTV with distress inks and added some Stardust Stickles.  The top right corner piece is cut with a Memory Box die - I love these dies, they are so sharp and you get a lovely clean cut

I added old rose mauve satin ribbon and 22mm white guipure lace then arranged a pink flower from my stash plus a couple of roses from a piece of pearl organza rose ribbon and instead of using bought leaves or punching some from green card as I usually do, I cut individual patterns from a piece of 22mm guipure lace to match the piece on the bottom of the card.  The background paper is Tilda winter garden from Panduro - bought the pad at the NEC earlier in the year.
Satin ribbon, guipure lace, Stickles and pearl organza rose ribbon all from here
See you soon, Mary G x
