Feminine Fancy

Good Morning, Afternoon, or Evening...depending on where you are visiting from today!
So glad you could stop by!

Today is a new challenge at Pile it On!
This week we would like to see cards made for the ladies in your life!
Our theme for this challenge is...


We are sponsored this week by the wonderful


who are offering one lucky winner a $10 Gift Voucher in their Etsy Store!
This digi stamp company has absolutely beautiful and detailed images!
I fell in love with the image "Kitten in Tea Cup".
I felt this was a great image to turn into a very feminine card.

Here's how my attempt turned out...

  While printing out the image I quickly decided I would print the sentiment straight onto the image sheet as well.   I chose one of the many sentiments I had from TLC Creations!  I just love Paulette's work!  I then got busy water coloring the image.  Now my daughter (age 10 almost 11) believes that pink is the most feminine of colors...and I tend to agree with her.  So I decided to go with shades of pink for the roses.  I added a thin layer of diamond Stickles on top of them to give them a shimmer.  I rummaged through my stash of pearls and came up with some beautiful swirls which I figured added to the softness of the card.  Now I thought a doily was the perfect addition to the tea themed creation.  I pinch pleated a doily as best I could and used it as a background for the roses I was about to put on.  I grouped the roses and then added some netting in various places...not sure you can see it too well in this photo.  And for the finishing touch I added a pearl hair pin.
My daughter felt it came out very pretty!

There are so many different elements you can incorporate in a card to make it feminine.  Please be sure to check out the other DT creations at the Pile it On blog as well!  I'm sure you won't be disappointed.  I can hardly wait to stop by your blog to see the feminine creation you come up with.

Until next time...
