Bella Tres Chic Challenge: Graceful

This month the Tres Chic Challenge at Bella Creations
is Fabulous!!
First off ....the style is Romantic...and I have done a sketch! 
 If you have purchased the July "Southern Charm" Kit from Bella's,
you will find the die cuts of the ballerina and Birdie song below,
in this month"s kit..
(I created the die cuts specifically for this kit and the sketch)
This month's kit has patterned paper from Melissa Frances..the 
5th Avenue papers.  Please check out the link above to see all the beauties you will receive in the kit.
Here is my take on the Sketch
I created the die cuts using Graphic Fairy Images,
My Ballerina die cut is backwards...because when I was cutting her out..I had the image both facing left and right..and this one turned out...while the other accidentally ripped.  Here are some close ups
All the flowers were from the kit or made with paper from the kit and cut on with my Silhouette SD (except for the two tiny brown roses..those are from my stash).  
I used the sweet sequins from the kit to add some sparkle just above the fabulous Gecko Galz Ballerina Image.  This is the image that you can use in my Sister Bella DT Member Helene's 
July Oh La La Challenge.
Here are some more closeups
Here are some lovely journaling spots..just got to figure out what I want it to say....I created my own mask and inked around them with vintage photo to create some of the flowers images on the paper.  I then used perfect pearls to to outline the petals..and freehand some leaves.  
I used antique buttons for the flower centers.
I just loved using the sequins to create flower centers..and the flower shaped sequins to create tiny flowers.  I inked all the flowers that came in the kit with vintage photo.  Here you can see more of my hand doodled leaf details....and sparkly heart gem.
I created this cute little stick pin using the fabric piece that came in the kit...and a pin that I had in my stash.  You can see some of my masked flowers.
Here is a close up of some sequin flowers and the Bella Ballerina die cut I created.  You can see some of my perfect pearls doodle leaves too :-)
The kit this month is Fabulous!!
