Dream - Meljen's Release

 Hi ya everyone!
  New release at Meljen's Design this week!  I LOVE this release...I like girly things because I have two sweet girls.  Growing up I was a tomboy but now - for whatever reason I'm turning into a person that loves pinks and pearls and that is the challenge at Meljen's Design Challenge blog.  I had to play even though it's my week to create anything!  I mean really -- look at this release found at Whimsy Stamps:
Also, I must add that I've been checking out Debbie Olson's site - Thinking Inking.  She is super amazing and her creations are inspiring.  I used her stitching technique with nestability cut-outs for this card.  Please check her blog out - I'm sure you will want to follow her. 
I started by coloring the adorable ballet slippers with my Copics.  I added a bit of sparkle with some Spica pen.  I used my nestable and cut out some pretty shapes in two different papers. 
 Added some paper from my DCWV stack for the main background and used my MS punch for a border.  I added some pearl accents and also colored a few pearls with my Copics.  I pulled out my sewing machine and added the stitching down one side.  I used my Copics to color my ribbon as well and added a tiny charm.
I also used my Perfect Medium with this Dream stamp and added some Perfect Pearls in a pretty pink shimmer.  Hop on over to the Meljen's Design Team blog and check out my teamies creations - they are gorgeous and the new release is so fun - join our challenge after picking up your own sweet Meljen stamp at Whimsy Stamps!
