TSTR175 ~ Be Still My Heart ~

Today's project was based on a sketch...  an old sketch...  a MOJO sketch I wanted to work with SO badly...  Even though the sketch challenge is over, I decided to do something with it.  Instead, I am entering it in a few other challenges including The Shabby Tea Room...  This week the theme is "romantic." 
Does it fit the bill?


 A closer look at the floral spray with scraps of lace and a pearl flourish...  I added some glitter glue and Flowersoft to the die cut ribbon banner...



I embossed the white card stock layer and added a few scattered pearls as well.  I used Copics to color the birdcage and separate ribbon die cuts.  Both have dimensional foam added for depth.  I nested the die cut image on a double layer of Spellbinders.  I opted to use a pink, white and black theme this time around.  I just love the pearls draped on the mannequin photo below!
