inked edges with Cat Eye Fluid chalk ink by COLORBOK
Ribbons and fibers out of my (GINORMOUS) stash
sentiment is computer generated
Stardust stickles by RANGER used on sentiment, on dancer's belt, show-bows,and daisy in her hair. Also added to the flower, and I added a drop to the glitter already on the paper.

I thank you all in advance for any comments!

a Tip: Plumber's metal adhesive tape (can be purchased in Walmart) sadly only comes in one width (perhaps wider in actual plumbing supply stores, I do not know)  works wonderfully in embossing folders!
and I recently found out that so does duct tape, check out this video (thanks Alex for sharing this):

I'll try to show a creation with the plumbers tape within this coming week.

:)Have a great day!
