If You Stumble

I don't know what your creative process is but mine usually centers around my sentiment. I love sentiments and my most favorite are those available at Create with TLC. I'd never used this particular sentiment before because I didn't have an image that was worthy enough. I recently came upon this Mayzy Art image and knew I'd hit the jackpot!

The card base is Kraft cardstock. The background papers are My Mind's Eye "In Bloom." The image is Mayzy Art's "Digi Dancer Ballet" stamp and was colored with Copics. I used Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" Distress Ink to ink distress the edges and pink pearl bling to highlighted her hair, arms and dress. The pearl swirl bling is from Recollections. The flower was made with the Tim Holtz "Tattered Flower Garland" die. It was highlighted with Distress ink and finished off with pink, round rhinestone bling. The satin ribbon is from American Crafts. Foam dots were the final touch to add dimension while a Fiskars extra large oval punch was used with the sentiment.
