I Just Love Being a Girl

I think this cards has the most layers I have ever used on a card. I love it!

All the cardstock is either Recollections or from Amy Tangerine's Rise and Shine 6x6 paper pad.  Just as a side note this paper collection is one that I can't cut down into my usual sizes.  I have kept every single scrap...I can't help myself.

Ok back on on  track.  I followed the current sketch over on the Mojo Monday Challenge blog for this card.  

The ballerina silhouette I found from a free clip art site..I have no idea which one.  My Cricut cut out the ballerina in no time. I did add clear wink of stella to the ballerina for some shine. Then I added some Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry around the sides using my ink blending tool.  Finally, I used my die cuts from Wish to cut out the frame for the sentiment.  Just that little bit of stitching really does make that pop.

The sentiment is another I inherited from my sister.  It says, "I love being a girl!".  I also cut out a butterfly using a die in the same blue strip but at a diagonal.  To the butterfly I added some clear wink of stella as well.  To make it shine I also added a layer of glossy accents.

Here is the sketch from Mojo:
