All Dressed Up For the Dance

Hello there!
It's Fat Pages And Card With Attitude time!  We had a great turnout last fortnight with 3 sponsors!  So 3 winners of wonderful images.  Isn't that great to have more than one chance to win?  I think yes!

I am trying to think if I have something funny to share with you, but alas, not really.  Except for my pup U-Lee singing Happy Birthday with us to my Mom!  I am guessing our singing hurt his ears!  Wish you could have heard him.  He carries a good tune!  Oh how funny, our theme is Music/Anything Goes!  He fits right in with this challenge!  Good Boy, Ulee!

Back to Fat Pages- this fortnights sponsors are Meljen's and Beccy's Place.  Great sponsors and with such wonderful creative images.  The theme-- Anything Goes/Music.  You can't go wrong!  Here is my card made with a sweet fairy from Beccy's called Carnation Fairy.  Beccy has created a birth flower fairy for every month!  Carnation is the flower for January.  I guess I am a few months off!


I was thinking of our optional theme Music and the song "A white sport coat and a pink carnation....I'm all dressed up for the dance."  That's the only line I remember!  And it keeps swirling in my head!  Remember that song?  So a January flower fairy in August. 

Carnation Fairy is colored with Prisma pencils.  Lace, pearls,  and a traced butterfly cut from a music print sent by a friend.  For the carnations, I sponged them lightly with pink chalk and intertwined them with a crystal hearts strand.  Topped it off with a pink seam binding ribbon.  Most of the products are from WOC.  Looks very pretty live with the crystals.  Super fun image to color. 

Well, another Fat Page completed...only thing missing is you!  Hope to see what you create this fortnight!  Check out the other DT member creations too.  You are sure to be inspired.  And Fat Pages doesn't add any calories!
