Creative Inspirations gets feminine!!!

Hello happy blogging buddies!!
It's time for a new challenge over at
Creative Inspirations,
a nice and easy one,
we'd like to see your feminine side!!!
Make something pretty, elegant, dainty, gorgeous,
and enter it in our challenge!!

This week we were provided with images to create with from our sponsor, Lauretta of Lauretta's Digital Stamps, thank you so much, the images are fun to bring to life!!

I've used one of Lauretta's digi images, this one is called Charleston Lady, coloured with Prismacolors and a little bit of baby oil over the black areas, thank you for the inspiration Lori!!! I've added distress stickles to Lady Charleston's boa and Liquid Pearls to her necklace, had to get my Ranger fix one way or another, lol. The polka dot DP is from Basic Grey's Junebug collection and the other DP's are My Minds Eye 29th Street Market yumminess!! The fibres, lace and golden ribbon are from my stash, so are the pearls, the gorgeous gardenias are from Tracey, still lovin' them.... A LOT!!!! And the punches I've used are Martha Stewart (twigs) and Fiskars (lace border), there is some gold Stickles in the mix as well.

I've also played along with the photo inspiration at
Secret Crafter Saturday, as well as the yummy sketch from Sketch Saturday, instead of corners, I placed a tilted peice of DP that adds interest to the corners, hope that is still okay.

I hope you will have a chance to hop over to Creative Inspirations, to see the brilliant works from the Design Team and that you have a chance to join us this week!!
Take Care,
