LSHD Blog Hop Day 2

In true "me" style, I'm fashionably late... I only got yesterday's post up yesterday (after I finished yesterday's project yesterday morning!!)...
Well, I can't say I'm late, because I'm still on time... my post is getting scheduled (one and a half hours before time, and I've just finished my project for today).

I was actually working on scrapbook layout, but that kind of fell apart when I just could not get it together... "scrappers block" I guess...
So onto the plan... I had the ballet shoes cut out, so quickly put a pair together and soon after that I had a card finished.

Today's project is using another paper pieced embellishment, made from a pattern from from Little Scraps of Heaven's store ($1 patterns), or go to the blog, where you can find the free digi image, along with many other cute images.

I used a technique I love doing on the corner of the card. The Patterned paper is double sided, so it works well - I tore off a corner and rolled the edges, revealing the pattern on the other side, then I stuck the torn off piece underneath. Neat hey....

A few little extra embellishments - roses, stamens, pearls (which are already on the clear thread), a border done with a Fiskars punch and finished off with chiffon ribbon, then finally a little bit of stitching over the ribbon (repeating the idea of the ballet shoes).
It's time to hop over to Inga again... enjoy the rest of the hop and hope to see you back here tomorrow.
