Little Ballerina

I am so late with my post today, I only finished this card last night and have been waiting for some decent light so I could photograph the card. Think I might have a long wait, it’s another dark and dreary day today so out came the daylight lamps. Anyhow, this Little Ballerina certainly brightens up my day, she is the sweetest little lady bless.

I'm entering this card in the Top Tip Tuesday challenge - buttons galore (thanks Leanne xx)

I was asked to guest design for The Ribbon Girl for November and December and of course me loving my ribbons the way I do it took me all of a nano-second to say yes. When my DT kit arrived on Friday I was drooling lol. I used their silk ribbon on this card, couldn’t help myself lol – I love how it holds its shape when tied in a bow. I also used one of their polka dot buttons in the centre of the bow and tied some candy pink bakers twine through the button before I fixed it to the bow with Crafters Pick glue.

lb1

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used 40mm hybrid tea rose, cherry blossom, aster daisies and gladioli stem flowers. All have been blinged to within an inch of their lives with pearl Glimmer Mist. The scrolls are from a Quickutz die.

lb2The paper is an old old one. I decided yesterday I am not going to buy any more papers till I start using up some of my older ones. Now we all know that is NOT going to work lol but I’m trying (yep very trying rofl). So I don’t even know if this paper is still available it’s so old. All that’s on the paper is the makers – Studio Light, ScrapsL93.

lb5

The sentiment is by Lili of the ValleyDream Days Sentiments which are back in stock.

I stamped the image on to Super Smooth Stamping card which in my opinion is the best out there for using with alcohol markers. coloured the image with Promarkers and used:
Skin: Apricot, Oatmeal, Blush
Hair: Raw Sienna, Mustard, Ivory
Dress and shoes: Cocktail Pink, Pale Pink and Blush

Sorry for the long post again, I do witter on don’t I !?!

And I forgot!! The new Kenny K challenge is up today here

This card will be on Ebay this evening.

Thanks for stopping by,

  49. Hi Bev
    Sorry I have been AWOL, (wasn't able to use my mobile broadband in Norfolk ). Luvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv your card, such pretty colour's, image is such a little cutie.
    I had to laugh when I read what you had written, about not buying any more paper, until you have used what you already have. I would like a pound for everytime that I myself have said the same thing, I would be a very rich person by now lol.
