I followed the FANCY sketch

Here is my Girly take with a Ballerina Card & it's matching little BOX

At first, I liked the idea of leaving this image uncolored, but my little girls insisted that I needed to color in ALL the Mice, LOL!!!!  Soooo, here is the second take with COLORED-in Mice...  :)
These flowers turned out looking very sparkly IRL, but it was tough to capture that sparkle in these photos...

Ballerina CARD & matching BOX RECIPE:
Stamps: Stampabillities, House-Mouse Designs, "Twinkle Toes", featuring "Amanda", HMGR1013
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Colorbox Dye, COPICS, SU White Signo Gel Pen

The Petaloo Flowers were first opened up to spread the petals. Then I sponged these with Colorbox Dye Inks and brushed each petal with Copper Glitter Nail Lacquer Polish. While still wet, I sprinkled these petals with Mainstays Pink Sparkly Glitter and topped off with MS Ultrafine White Glitter to soften the color.

These Petaloo FLOWERS are so much fun to color and the possibilities are ENDLESS!!!  Make sure to enter for your chance to win that big fabulous Petaloo Flower prize (pictured above):
