Tres Chic!

The Bella Creations Tres Chic style challenge for July is romantic. And the July Bella Creations main kit, Southern Charm, is full of romance--soft colors, pretty flowers, lovely ballerinas, fabric and die cuts evoking a gentle time period.  I chose to make a layout.

Tres Chic also is a recipe challenge.  We're to use the colors blue, pink, cream and brown--certainly prominent in these beautiful Melissa Frances 5th Avenue papers from the July kit.   The elements to include are pearls, sequins, fabric, and a tag.

And our DT Bella, Heather, provided us with this sketch:

I loved working with DT Bella Heather's ballerina die cut and Carla's brown fabric flower, items found only in this kit.

Note to inkers:  The Ranger Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar match these papers perfectly!  I used them on the white doily and to edge the blue tag. Both the tag and the ticket that dd1 is sitting on are from the add-on kit.

To see the Southern Charm kit and learn how to buy one for yourself, go HERE (my previous blog post) or HERE (the Bella Creations blog).

This month's sponsor for the Tres Chic challenge is the Crafter's Companion.  Here is the prize (winner selected by random draw) --this wonderful Fairyopolis card making kit.  Please return tomorrow to see what I made with this kit.
