Make A Wish


Such a pretty set to show you today that evokes all the feeling of a pretty princess, and dreams for a delightful future!

I made a special Graduation card for our daughter who will have her Grade 9 grad on Friday, I wanted it to be a little over the top to celebrate, so here it is.... 


I colored up this beautiful pair of ballet shoes with the very lovely Sweet Pea Copic Collection, with the addition of a little RV13 in the shadows of the shoes and then some light blues in BG's and B's with the pointillism technique in the background to give it that dreamy effect.  I think Marcy illustrated this set so beautifully...those shoes look so delicate.  I added some pretty pearls to the shoes too...but the show-stopper accent is probably the Bloomers Ribbon Petals, with some lovely and decadent lace behind it.  

The paper is some older Webster's Pages that I found that went perfectly with that dreamy feel.  The little rose embellishments went so perfectly with the flowers on the shoes that I had to use them too.
