April Sketch Challenge at Blue Fern Studios

I can't believe how the months are flying by this year! It is time for the April Sketch Challenge over at Blue Fern Studios and here is my layout I'd love to share, featuring the gorgeous Courtship Lane papers and my ballerina who isn't camera shy in her costume for her youth ballet show, Coppelia!

Here is the gorgeous sketch this layout was based on:

Of course I had to used the ballerina from the Music Box chipboard, embossed with Imagine Ink Embossing Powder in Cotton Candy.  I have also done a little cluster in the top right hand corner of the layout with the Turkish Bits, again with the Imagine Ink Embossing Powder in Cotton Candy. Here you can see the gorgeous Courtship Lane Roses.

I have tucked in some of the Courtship Lane West Plaza paper under my photos here, adding more Courtship Lane Roses and Blooms. To tie in with the black lacing on the costume I have added some black seambinding in a bow and some black lace.  I have added some stamping from the music stamp from the Texture Circles Stamp Set and the diamond pattern from the Forever Stamp Set.

Here you can see more Courtship Lane blooms and the I Think You're Wonderful Chipboard  which I have embossed with the Imagine Ink Embossing Powders in Cotton Candy and Heavenly

To finish off my layout, I added some masking and molding paste and some purple splashes. I tucked in a tag for journaling and a Reneabouquet butterfly.
