Wish Upon a Star

 This sweet little gal is Lili of the Valley's Wish Upon a Star and the image is so perfect for a little girl I know who is having a ballet recital soon.  I actually didn't let this stamp 'cure' like I ordinarily do because I think I've only had it for a week or so but I loved it when I saw it, still like it and thought it was perfect for her card.
I did mess up with the top left corner... stamped the darned thing upside down and of course it was the very last thing I did so I didn't want to start all over but I guess that's what personalizes it, right?  The little corner swirls are Memory Box's Villanti Crest and the diie for the sentiment is Whimsy's Notables 2 die.  To get a matted edge, I always cut the sentiment with the die and then trace around the die and use a scissor.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley;s Set 9 Mixed Circular Sentiments and the edges are the LOTV Grunge Corners.  The papers are K&Company's Julianne 6x6 pad and I've used Copics to colour the image.
Challenges:
Lili of the Valley - diamonds & pearls
Lexi's Creations - punches & dies
Oozak - Anything Goes
