Little Ballerina

Feels like ages since my last post, its just no good that work gets in the way of crafting Lol.

I am well and truly worn out after a hectic weekend including a brilliant day at Sincerly Yours Craft Show at Lincoln yesterday.  It was great to meet up with old friends and to meet new ones.  If you were lucky to go I hope you had a great time and didn't spend too much !!!!!!!!!!!!

My little offering tonight is a card I made for my youngest niece Ayshia for her 10th birthday, she loves to dance including ballet.  As she has such an unusual but beautiful name, just like her (but then I am biased), I always make sure I can incorporate it into the card for her. 
I couldn't resist the Molly Blooms Ballerina, she looks just like Ayshia right down to the freckles (which she hates)

I used the Grand Scallop Circles to make the base card, easel topper and the harlequin paper background.  Molly was stamped using memento and then coloured with promarkers - must remember to write down which colours I use in future.
A Marianne die was used to frame Molly, letter peeloffs for Ayshias name & age placed around.
Another favourite of mine is to make the paper roses using a flower punch and 2 shades of the foundations paper, I gave the finished flower a quick spritz with cosmic shimmer (Pearl - I think).
The stopper was made from a spellbinder label and finished with a Hero Arts stamp 'Birthday & Always'.

Hopefully you will continue to stop by and look, maybe leave a comment or two or even join as a follower.

Take care and have a good week
