FTTC136 ~ All Dolled Up

This week's hostess at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC136 is Betty Wright. If you have never seen her work you need to pop over and take a look - wow is she ever talented!! This week she is challenging us to pull out all the stops and get "All Dolled Up." We're playing dress up and going all girl with ribbons and bows, pearls and glitz, and anything else girly!

For those that really know me - I am not at all girly. I think I have two dresses in my closet!! But when it comes to my cards - I love all girly with pink being my go to color. When I thought about the set I wanted to use how could I pass on Make a Wish? It's everything girly...what girl (even Tom-boys) doesn't want to be a princess?

Dolled-Up


I just love this card. When I saw Betty make a card with these shoes - I immediately purchased this set. I had to have these slippers. Years ago I was given a small pair of ballet slippers and they sit on my dresser - these slippers look just like them. They are one of my most prized possessions. I just love how my "girly" card came out. It's so me and yet not me!!

Now it's time to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the design team ~ Cindy, Heather, Maki, Tammy, Silke, Beate and Betty.

Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome day!!
Theresa

Totally perfect! I love the sweet slippers, and every little detail you added just makes it even more princessy - the pearls, the lace, the PINK, the amazingly intricate die cut corners...it totally appeals to me, though I'm even less 'girly' than you - I have one dress in my closet, that I haven't worn since my friend's wedding in 2001. Ahem.
