DT Post - Phindy's Friday Challenge #8 - One for the Girls!


This week at Phindy's Friday Challenge we've got a fun challenge for you, to make a girly, feminine card using one of Phindy's lovely images.

There are some changes to the prizes on the challenge:the winner each week, chosen by Random.org will receive an $8 Gift Certificate to Phindy's Place store. We will have an additional weekly prize for the card (or project) chosen as "Pick of the Week", they win a 10% off voucher for Phindy's Place store. Once a month we will choose an overall winner from the weekly winners and they will be offered a Guest position on the DT - and of course a free image from Phindy's Place to use for that week's challenge!

Back to this week's challenge, more exciting news for you: Phindy has generously made one of her gorgeous digis available from the Challenge Blog for you to download. Beary Beautiful, check out the blog for more info.

Now, on to the fun part, the card:). I used Paulas' sketch from Sketch Saturday for my card layout. I loved this as soon as I saw it and I've come across quite a few gorgeous cards using it as I've hopped around blogdom - definitely one to keep and use again:). My image is the totally adorable Belle of the Ball and I've tried to be bold and given her a glowing orange dress. Sentiment is Papermania, DP is Basic Grey Sugar Rush. I bought the orangey-brown rosebuds and the eyelets at Flutterbys the other day, I've added Stickles to the flowers and to Belle, leaves are from a punch. Yes, I know Belle is off-centre, I wanted to add the flowers and they wouldn't fit otherwise - honest:). Can't get the colours right in this gloomy weather, the scalloped circles are hot pink... will have another go when it's sunny again - whenever that is LOL!

I'm also entering my card for Cupcake Craft Challenge's Dazzle Us theme (lots of Stickles), Stampin' for the Weekend's summer/travel theme, Paper Sundae's Summertime Fun and A Spoonful of Sugar's Floral Delight challenge.
