My Grafico for Tuesday Throwdown and Emma Gifts of Love

I do love every other Tuesday because that means I get to do a project for Tuesday Throwdown!  This week we are being sponsored by My Grafico!  They have some fabulous images and you can find out all the details on the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge blog.  We are challenging you to use extra layers and I tried to pour them on!

I love gift giving and how pretty little girls are when they get all dressed up.  I fell in love with Emma Gifts of Love from Elphine House Australia and had to ink her up and use her!  She could be any one of my three girls when they were young or my three granddaughters on any holiday.

I colored the gorgeous butterfly from My Grafico and the beautiful Miss Emma with copics and used my nestabilities for the frame and oval.  I had to give that holiday dress some Stickles to make her sparkle and also added some to her present.  I stitched around my layers and added a gorgeous embellishment from Close to My Heart.  I used some distressed inks to the edge of Emma and to the inside and I made the flowers and added the branches from a Martha Stewart punch.  The lace and pearls are from my stash.  I love this gorgeous paper from K&Company.

Here's a close up of the beautiful brass embellishment.  Love says it all, don't you think?

Here's a sneak peek of the inside with the side view.

Isn't she just the prettiest thing?

Here's the inside.  I love this butterfly on the paper.  All shiny and fabulous!

Hope you enjoyed your visit here today!  Make sure to stop over at Tuesday Throwdown and see what my fabulously talented designing team buddies have to inspire you with.  Make sure to join our challenge and show us your layers!
