Crafty Sentiments Designs new release blog hop

Good morning everybody,

I was contacted a while back by Suzette, the owner of Crafty Sentiment Designs, with an invitation to be one of her guest designers for an upcoming release. Though I normally have to say no very often to invites like this I had been tempted to try one of the Crafty Sentiment Designs images before since I had already seen some gorgeous samples with them by blogging buddies. So since I still had plenty of time before the new release I decided to join in.
I'd like you to meet a new character from Crafty Sentiment Designs, this gorgeous lady is named Isobel and this particular stamp/digi is called "Off to the Ball", she will be in the Crafty Sentiments store with 9 other images from the 22nd of August. I decided pretty early that I wanted this pretty lady to be a red head and when I decided that I wanted to use this pretty design paper that I bought at a craft fair last year (I've cut off the strip with details so can't tell you what line it is) the rest of the materials followed from that. The pretty Lace Doily Corner 1 die and the Lace Doily Border 1 die behind the strip of paper are both Whimsy Stamps. I've used two Spellbinder Peony die cuts behind the image and cut wholes into one side of the new shape created and tied different kinds of ribbon from stash through that. The gorgeous products by Wild Orchid Craft are:
Mixed Colour Cherry Blossom Stem Flowers
Mixed Pink/White Chrysanthemums
Mixed White/Cream Carnation Flowers
White Sweetheart Blossom Flowers
Star Shaped White Pearl Beads
And if you do go to the ALL NEW Wild Orchid Crafts store be sure to check out the gorgeous new products!!

Hair: E39, E08, YR27, YR16
Aqua color: BG18, BG15, BG53, BG11, BG70
Brown accents: E57, E55, E53, E51, E50
