Wonder which Designer contains the Grand Prize this month?
For today's reveal, I've chosen Ellie's Dance Lesson and colored her with Copic markers.  Touches of Mystical Mauve glitter was added to the waistband, headband and her toenails, as well as to the mouse's tutu.  A small dot of dimensional glue was added to the centers of the flowers on her head band and then covered in Lavender Iris glitter.

After die cutting the image using the Spellbinders Labels Four die, it was adhered to a panel of Mon Ami Gabby Silver Diamond Mesh.  The photo doesn't really do just to the sparkle that this panel adds to the card.  It's also light weight enough that it doesn't make the card feel heavy at all.

The two solid color flowers were hand cut in a spiral shape and rolled up to create the flowers.  The center flower is a Sizzix die (Flowers, 3D) that I die cut.  The "leaves" are actually a tree die from Memory Box (Small Adler Tree) that I cut off various parts and adhered to the back of the flowers.

I'm the last stop on the Oct 1 New Reveal Blog Hop. I hope you've enjoyed it and have gotten lots of inspiration.  Don't forget to leave each of us a comment for your chance to win the grand prize of all six of the stamp sets released this month.
