Papercraft Star Challenge #31

     We have another great sketch to work with this week at Papercraft Star.  For my card I've used a cute little stamp from our Design Team sponsor, My Favorite Things, called "Ballet Millie".  The image is colored with Copic markers and I've added a light border of green chalk shading to tie in some of the background paper.  I've used some lovely Prima papers and a gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts gardenia along with some pearls and pretty silver ribbon to dress up Millie's "stage".

     Our sponsor this week is Catherine Pooler, Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator. Catherine is giving out a fabulous prize for the People's Choice Award winner for this challenge - One Free Month of Club InBox! Members of Club InBox (including our winner) get exclusive videos and tutorials teaching you techniques, seasonal projects, mini-albums, cards and more. All projects are new and Catherine only shares them with club members!
     Our Grand Prize sponsor for the month of February is COPIC MARKERS!!  Yep, you read that right.  Copic will be supplying us with a couple of markers to give away each week and the Grand Prize is a set of 12!  To be eligible for the prize you have to enter the challenge.  The more times you enter the more chances you'll have to win!  Link your creation at the Papercraft Star blog by 12:00 noon EST on Saturday and then pop back in to vote for your top two faves.
     Happy Wednesday!

The mouse in itself is so cute, but you used the right and appropriate quote to go with it Tracy! And that background paper is so pretty! I haven't seen it on the market over here, but it will be soon enough I guess :-) Have a great day, Ira x
