{MTSC93} Dance ~ Sing ~ Live!



I'm not sure why, but this one did not come easy for me at all.   You would laugh if you knew how much time I spent on this simple card.  I started out with a Pure Innocence image, got it all colored with my Copic markers and then didn't think her dress color matched my designer paper..  The more I tried to "fix" it, the worse it got.  So, I got the brilliant idea to paper piece her dress!   Well, that didn't work either. : (


I was almost ready to throw in the towel when I thought mayble I could salvage it with this lovely stamp by Verve.  Added some sheer ribbon and a button and there you go!   Sheesh!

Here is Mercy's sketch for those of you who want to play along...we would ♥ to have you join us!

I hate cards that just won't come together - so frustrating! However, your second attempt is fabulous in my books! Gorgeous DP and some great stitching to boot. I have such a hard time when sketches have multiple panels like that - run the other way I do LOL!

Very pretty card! I love the sentiment. Sometimes just adding something as simple as a button helps make it all work out :) (Wish life was like that sometimes!)
