Hi there - hope your week is going well wherever you are. 
Just popping by to share a birthday card with you tonight, which I have made for one of my Granddaughters. She will be 7 next week, and she absolutely loves going to her ballet classes and her favourite colour is pink, and more pink - a very girly-girl and I love her to bits!
The gorgeous stamp is "Belle" by Victoria Case for SCACD, bought from Quixotic Paperie (see the link in my side-bar). She has been coloured with Distress Inks, and her tu-tu has been stamped a second time, cut out and layered with silicone glue. Backing papers are Basic Grey Porcelain, the black lace is a Prima stamp.
Finished with machine stitching, paper roses, ribbon and Glamour Dust.
Thank you so much for visiting.  Hugs, Sylvia xxxxxxxx

Hi Sylvia

Your Ballerina is a beauty. Perfect for any little girl. I love the way you've layered her skirt up. she looks like she's dancing off your card!!
I've just been admiring your Christmas card in the last post too. That holly paper is gorgeous.
You are so organised starting your cards already!!

Sylvia, your little dancer is so cute. The layered skirt looks fabulous. She reminds me of my now 19 year who has only just given up ballet due to lack of time after doing it since she was 4.
Hope you're well. Hugs, Fliss xx
