I'm in excellent company

I'm in excellent company when I think of you dear bloggers! Thinking of you and so I created this shrine with the pretty Gecko Galz May sheet Girls of the Moulin Rouge and Oh La La stamp set and of course it is pink so Ill be sharing on Beverly Pink Saturday. I'm off to a historic house tour and lunch in the beautiful historic city of Beaufort, South Carolina today. I hope to share photos with you  all this week.

So to make this piece, I started with a patterned chipboard shine that I painted  with pink and white acrylic paints. It was tied together with lime rayon and pink velvet ribbons. The Moulin Rouge dancers were fussy cut Stickle accented and then layered on the Oh La La stamp set that I printed on transparency paper. The hand cut watercolored sentiment text, some black and coordinating pleated sequins, bright colored pearls and colored fabric roses top off these lovely dancers.

Hope you will be in excellent company this week.
artfully yours, gerri
