2 Sisters Challenge ~ Gettin' Girlie

Good morning! Today at 2 Sisters we are challenging you to create a card/project with the theme of GETTIN' GIRLIE. We are being sponsored this week by Pattie's Creations. The image I am showcasing on my card this week is called Gymnast Pattieboop.



The sketch that I used for my card this week is from the challenge at The Pixie Cottage. I created my card base using the colors mauve ice and vintage pink. I split the card diaganally using these two colors and backed them in brandywine. I then added tourmaline fine glitter from Martha Stewart Crafts to the brandywine cardstock which created the edging of my card. I then punched a strip of brandy wine cardstock using a starry night border punch from EK Success. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils and backed it in brandywine cardstock. I also backed the sentiment in the brandywine cardstock. I added more of the tourmaline fine glitter to the brandywine cardstock around the image and sentiment and to the outfit and hairpiece on the image. I punched 3 stars out of brandywine cardstock using a star punch from EK Success and added them to the left side of the image. I used 3 of the smaller stars from punching out the border and added them to the bottom left corner of the card. I then added more of the tourmaline glitter to all six stars.

This is the first time that I have used the fine glitter from Martha Stewart Crafts. But I saw it yesterday at AC Moore and decided that I wanted to try it out. So this fits right into the following challenges:

Ann's Creative Nook: Use Something New

Pile It On: Brand Spankin New

Paper Sundaes: Something New

Creative Inspirations: Use Something New

The Creative Cottage: Something New

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Fab N Funky: Anything Goes

Bunny Zoes Crafts: Sparkle & Shine

Stamp Something: Digi Day Challenge
