Lili of the Valley - Dainty Dancing Mk II

Morning everyone! I'm here today with an inspiration post for The Ribbon Girls. We have a new challenge and as usual for the 2nd challenge of the month it's Anything Goes - Use Any Image.

 Now I have to say that I had this card in my draft folder and had almost forgotten about it! A while ago I made a card with this stamp and as with many of my cards I sold it on my Etsy shop.  The lady who bought it messaged me to say that she wanted to buy 2 of the card, 1 for her daughter to frame for her room, and one to give to her daughter's best friend.

I had to explain that I only make one of a kind cards, so no two are exactly the same. But I offered to make a very similar card, using different colours and papers, and similar but different embellishments.

This is what I made.

These lovely papers are from Pion Design from an old collection called Fairytale of Spring. I also used some Kraft cardstock.

The stamp is from Lili of the Valley and is called Dainty Dancing. I coloured her with distress ink markers, and edged all my papers in Walnut Stain.
Colours used: Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs

The star dies are from La-La Land Crafts.

So that you can see the subtle changes I made, here are the original and the new card, side by side.
