Off to the Ball

Good morning everybody,

Today I'm joining a blog hop on my personal blog and I thought I'd show you the card using a gorgeous new character from Crafty Sentiment Designs named Isobel here as well.
This particular stamp/digi is called "Off to the Ball", she will be in the Crafty Sentiments store with 9 other images from the 22nd of August. I decided pretty early that I wanted this pretty lady to be a red head and when I decided that I wanted to use this pretty design paper that I bought at a craft fair last year (I've cut off the strip with details so can't tell you what line it is) the rest of the materials followed from that. The pretty Lace Doily Corner 1 die and the Lace Doily Border 1 die behind the strip of paper are both Whimsy Stamps. I've used two Spellbinder Peony die cuts behind the image and cut wholes into one side of the new shape created and tied different kinds of ribbon from stash through that.
The gorgeous products by Wild Orchid Craft are:
Mixed Colour Cherry Blossom Stem Flowers
Mixed Pink/White Chrysanthemums
Mixed White/Cream Carnation Flowers
White Sweetheart Blossom Flowers
Star Shaped White Pearl Beads
A close up of pretty Isobel, as always colored with Copic Markers and completely 3D paper pieced. The colors that I used are:
Skin: E11, E00, E000, E0000
Hair: E39, E08, YR27, YR16
Aqua color: BG18, BG15, BG53, BG11, BG70
Brown accents: E57, E55, E53, E51, E50

And a picture of the little pieces:
Hope you like my card, have a great day everybody!!
