Ballerina Birthday

Welcome

I have had this gorgeous All Dressed Up image coloured and ready to go on my desk for ages, and decided to use it on this card for a two year old.


I cut the image with a S/B Labels 11, embossed it,  then coloured the debossed line with a prismacolor pencil - fussy, but it was worth it, I feel.


I cannot recall which pencils I used to colour the image. I added clear Kindy Glitz to the top of the skirt and the bow.


I mounted the image panel over some old DP - from the Prima Fairy Flora pad, one of my original patterned paper pad purchases.  I split where I placed the sentiment, with three 'happy's across the top of the card,


and the 'birthday' at the base.  The stamps are a clear set that I received in Blog Candy from the lovely Barb, but they had no brand name on them. 
A few (carefully placed) random sequins finished the card after mounting the image over the layer of lace.

Such a very pretty fairy Maxine and a delightfully girly card.

It's lovely to see you at Penny Black and More but I following your link above looks like this might be a digi image which would make your card ineligible fr the prize draws, if I am wrong please do let me know.
