Tuesday Throwdown- Favorite Embellishment

 The Tuesday Throwdown Challenge is back from break, and we are using our Favorite embellishments for challenge #226. We are sponsored by Diane's Daydream Designs this week.

 Our Sponsor generously gave us digi's to work with, and I used the digi Ballerina and a dance  sentiment. I used a Cheery Lynn Designs die cut for the Metallic Silver layer.  I added embellishments cut from chipboard and embossed with Enamel EP from SweetStamps- the  enamel EP makes gorgeous embellishments- the stars are very sparkly IRL.
 The image is colored with Copics.  The background is from my Technique Junkies stash, and has pink plus a  shimmery silver metallic ink.

Challenges:
Card Mania- Make it Sparkle
Sparkle and Sprinkle- AG using EP
Hiding in My Craft Room- Pinks
ShowCase your Style- Use at least one Die Cut
Glitter and Sparkle- AG

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey, you really can't get a worse coach than Trestman, can you? I am so grateful that the Bears took him instead of Arians, but I hope that you get someone really good now! Here's hoping both our teams do well in 2015!
