OSAAT Challenge 28 Girlie Theme/and or Photo Inspiration

Here we are on Sunday again & this can only mean, its time for another OSAAT challenge.The sponsor this week is Kenny K & the prize is 3 digis from his fabulous store.
This week we were given the challenge to make a card/project with a girlie theme and or using the above photo as inspiration, so heres my easel DT card.
I made it girly (at least I think it & also took the lilacs, pinks & blues from the photo. The image is by Lil Diva & called Chloes Ballet Lesson. She can be purchased at Stitchy Bear & I Did It Creations store

I cut out the mounts using my Robo & coloured the image with my Prismas, together with paper piecing her dress & decoupaging her little bow. BPs a mixture of free downloads from Computer Scrapbook and one I had on my computer (origin unknown). The blue spotty one I printed onto card to enable me to use it on the topper.

Xmas in pink

I can't believe how many Xmas cards I have made so far this year, I am so organised!!!!
Anyway, this is such a girly one, The image is by Bella Studio, which was given away free last month I think. I have paper pieced her coat in Bearly Mine Plaids & Gingham & coloured her with both Prismas & Marvy pens & a water brush. Glittered her furry bits!
The backing papers are so gorgeous, these are from Computer Scrapbook & called Snow Princess. The site is offering free papers at the moment & there are many sets of papers to download, so go on & take a look, you will not be disappointed. The word snow was already on the BP, so I glittered it to make it pop.

Peony flower

Really simple card to make, BP from Stitchy store. They are called Girls World & by Stamping Dragon Designs. The peony in the centre is made by myself using Fred She Said Paper & Roses set & coloured with H2os. I couldnt get the colour right of the peony in the photo as it shows up darker than it is in real life. It matches the daisy flower perfectly.
Martha Stewart "Rings" punch
SU sentiment
Entered into Craft Your Passion as it is make your own flower/s & the peony in the middle is hand made.

Flowers, flowers & more flowers

I have been playing the last couple of days & as you can see, have been making my own flowers. Now its not like I don't already have enough flowers, but thats not the point, I wanted to see how well I could make them & I am pleased with the results.
I have used a variety of punches & also Paper & Roses set, (which I cut out on my trusted Robo), from Fred She Said to make them and glittered them where appropiate. I added a few jewels & coloured them with either H2Os or ink pads. I will certainly be making more of these.

OSAAT challenge 27 Shapes

Another week has gone by & here we are again with another OSAAT challenge. This week we are being sponsored by Craft Brulee who are very kindly giving away a $10 prize to be spent at their store. This time is all about shapes & we were asked to make something other than a card if we could, using shapes so heres my entry.
The image is by Sylvie stamps over at Stitchy Bear shop & I Did It Creations. Its called Baby Clapping, which I have coloured with Prismas again. I have used rectangles on the top of the box for my shapes.
This is mounted onto a box I made, which I thought could keep babys first tooth, hospital bracelet, that kind of thing.

Fred She Said flowers
