A card for Brieana

Hello everyone :oD

Exciting 5 year old daughter has been doing Ballet
since she turned 2, she absolutely LOVES it, she would dance
all day every day if she didn't have to go to school haha. She
started Jazz and Tap about18 months ago too.

She has just been invited to take part in her first exams for
both dance classes and she is really excited about it - Yay!
If all goes well, she may also be able to perform solo dances
on stage soon too (atleast she is hoping anyway, she has such
big dreams for such a little girl lol), so that will mean extra
rehearsals until July.

Here she is all dressed up and waiting to go on stage, she is
the one doing the hugging, with the beautiful big smile and
reddish hair....

Ok, now onto my card :o)  I am entering this one into
Magnolia Downunder challenges #45  "PAPER TOLE"  and
Just Magnolia week 54  "IT TAKES TWO"
Magnolia Stamp Lovers "MAKE IT DIMENSIONAL"

I have to admit that when I  first saw these challenges, I was
really wishing for my new Fairytale stamps. I have been quite
busy this week and thought I'd never get this card done and
lo and behold, the postie dropped by with my first delivery of
new stamps Yay yay yay!!!!!
After drooling over them all for a few minutes, I had to
choose the Ballerina one and make a card based on the
excitement of my daughter's upcoming exams...perfect :0D

So with out further ado, here is the card that I have made
for her...

I wanted to re-create the ballet studio, and apparently,
Midsummer Tida had to have Jazz shoes on (lol)

Here you can see the paper tole layers...

Stamps      Ballerina Tilda, Midsummer Tilda
Paper         Ballerina Paper, Regal Rose card, asst card for paper piecing
Embeishments     Roses, leaves, fillers, diamond stickles, Butterfly, alfoil
ribbon, Ballerina bracelet charm, foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by :oD
