Side Stepping a Purple Circle.

I've complete my first circle side stepper for a young girl in the States. She's 12 and has a congenital spine defect that has kept her in pain all her life. It hasn't held her back from doing all she wants to though. The dr's want to operate soon but it would be a difficult and dangerous a great deal of thought before anything happens. You can find instructions to make the side stepper on Marlene's blog here
This is of course a Sugar Nellie Design and she's called Verity. Beautiful isn't she. I did do some shading on her, though not a lot is needed...I think I've been too subtle for the scanner to show it up though. The button is one of my very favouite, pearly with an 'engraved' rose.  The ribbon I used for the rosette behind it and for the bows is some wired ribbon I had from my flower arranging obsession.....see, it is right that I keep all these old  crafting stashes isn't it lol.

Plenty girly on this one, scallops, paper lace, gems and fancy pins add to the effect. My scallopy edging all around the edging is from a fancy oval die cut..I cut the fancy edge and eased it around the card.

A close up of my button. I'm getting a little better 
at parting with my favourites I think lol.
