You're the Best! for All Dressed Up Stamps

July 1.  July 1?  Where did June go?  July 1 -- that means it's the start of a new challenge in the All Dressed Up Stamps Facebook Group.  The theme for July is Gems &/or Pearls.  Easy, right?  So many of Wendy Burns beautiful girlie images will work wonderfully with gems and pearls.  Start coloring them up!  You'll find them in the All Dressed Up Stamps Etsy Shop

For my design team inspiration, I colored up the darling Pretty Lashes, adding pearls to the card: 

My original plan had been to add a pearl necklace, but I didn't have any seed beads that looked pearl-like to make it work.  This was plan B.  I colored Pretty Lashes with Copic markers.  I just love this image!  Isn't she beautiful?  I don't know if it's the upswept hair, or the flowers in her hair, or maybe it's those Pretty Lashes, but I think she's just awesome!   Do you like the papers on this card?  They are also from All Dressed Up Stamps.  The pretty pink background paper is from the All Dressed Up Pink papers.  The pretty blue border is from the Wedding papers

I used a sketch from a couple weeks ago at Sketch Saturday to help me construct this card.  They have a plethora of great sketches if you're stuck!  The sentiment is an acrylic stamp from Close To My Heart.  The pearls, also from Close To My Heart, were all white, but I used a Copic marker and colored them to match my Pretty Lashes girl.  I love this technique!  I works great with gems and ribbon, too.  The border was made with a Diamond Press die. 

Gems &/or pearls -- it's the theme all this month for the All Dressed Up Facebook Group Challenge.  I do hope you join us and try to win some of these darling digis for yourself!
