To the ball

   This card is for my sister whose birthday is at the end of the month. I matted some 'musical' paper from my stash onto shiny lilac card and white card. I also matted some lilac mulberry paper onto the same shiny lilac card and fixed this to the lower half of the card and then attached a small rectangle of rose pattened embossed paper on the right hand side of this, glueing a lace ribbon to the corner of this.
   The digi image from Lacy Sunshine is called 'Steampunk Cindy to the ball'. I coloured her using Promarkers, cut her out using a Spellbinders long classic rectangle die and while the image was still in the die coloured the background using distress inks. I then matted it onto shiny embossed paper which had been cut out using a long classic scalloped rectangle die and attached it to the left hand side of the card. I glued pearls to the buttons of the dress and the clasp of the waist tie.
   I coloured the sentiment using distress ink and attached it to the card using glue gel. Finally I added two butterflies cut from mirri card using a mini Tattered Lace die to the sentiment.
