JAI #643 Choose Two Dance

Hello everyone and welcome back! It's hard to believe that Summer is over already and the mornings are definitely darker and cooler lately. The veggie garden is still producing lots of tomatoes and other summer goodies so it doesn't quite feel like Autumn yet. Saleabration is over and I placed a late order so it's been fun to play with some new goodies from the Occasions Catalogue this week.

It's new challenge time at Just Add Ink and Nikki has suggested we Choose Two of Blending, Embossing or White. These elegant techniques really create a lot of options and the design team have created a beautiful array of cards to inspire you so I hope that you can pop on over and take a look and I'd love to see what you create!

My card with its white embossing has proven difficult to photograph so I hope that you can see the musical notes on the white background. I chose Blending and Embossing - and yes, there is white too.

The ballerina image from the new Ballet Beauty set is stamped and then coloured using a few different pink coloured Blends and then covered in a liberal layer of Wink of Stella. Fussy cut and added above a white and silver ribbon. My oldest niece has just started using point shoes in her ballet classes and so this card is to celebrate her wonderful achievement. 

The cut apart sentiment is part of one in the same stamp set.  The Dance is created using the Playful Alphabet dies, a few layers of each letter and a generous layer of Fine Tip Glue Pen to make it 3D and shiny. 
The white background layer is embossed with the Merry Melody 3D embossing folder.

Card stock: Petal Pink, Basic White
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black, Blends: Petal Pink, Rococo Rose
Accessories: Die Cutting Machine, Merry Melodies  EF, Playful Alphabet Dies, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Fine Tip Glue Pen, White and Silver Ribbon, Metallic Sequins Assortment

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my card and are inspired to join in this week's Just Add Ink challenge. I look forward to seeing what you will create for this fun and elegant challenge!

'Til next time,
