Well, I don't exactly know what happened, but I had this post scheduled and it disappeared! I am still trying to figure out what happened, but unfortunately, I am really late getting this posted.
This week's challenge over at My Craft Spot is to make something "Girly Girl". When thinking about a design for this challenge, I couldn't think of anything more Girly Girl then a Ballerina. Hee! Hee! Besides that, it finally gave me a reason to blow the dust off of that "Shall We Dance" circle cartridge. Hee! Hee!
I used the Build a Valentine Stamp Set by My Craft Spot for the sentiment on this card to simply say "You're Awesome". I used the ballerina with all layers and the frame feature for this card. I used the shadow to cut the music paper, then the frame for the pink paper and then cut all of the individual layers of the ballerina with appropriate colors. I inked everything with a chocolate ink. You may have to enlarge the pics to see all of the tiny details on this card.
I used some bright pink tulle, rolled it up and then cut into it with scissors to make the little skirt. I used Pink and Cream bakers twine from My Craft Spot for the bow. I also added some glitter glue here and there for the outfit and some details. I added some pink stones on the frame as well.
I kept the inside as elaborate as the front and cut an oval out of the cream paper for the sentiment on the inside of the card. It wasn't actually my week to design for the challenges, but I just wanted to challenge myself with this card. I was so pleased with the way it turned out that I thought it was worthy of the post. Even if it's a little late. Hee! Hee! Thanks so much for visiting today... I would love to hear what you think of the "Guy's" version of a Girly Girl card! Hee! Hee! I hope you all try out the challenge this week too over at My Craft Spot! This was so much fun!!!
