Shall We Dance?

Good morning bloggers hope everyone is ok.

If you went to Ally Pally or are going today I hope you had/have a great time and don't spend too much (not much point in going in that case, lol)!  I have got a girlie card today with lots of pink and some glitz and bling:


Reminds me of when I used to take Stacey my daughter to ballet in her little pink leotard!  The cute little image is a rubber stamp from Little Darlings which I recently won - thank you! Again I have used a sketch to make my card - so much easier! I have coloured with a mixture of Copics and Prisma Pencils and added some Glossy Accents to their eyes and Stickles to their tutus.  The papers are First Edition from Birdsong.  I have embossed some White Pearl card and distressed the edges with Victorian Velvet DI.  The image has been cut and matted with Spellbinders, border with X Cut die, Corner with Cuttlebug die and the heart with Nellie Snellen die.  The cameo is from Wild Orchid and ribbon and gems from stash.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Truly Scrumptious - Sketch
Little Darlings - Pastels
Totally Gorjuss - Bling it
Card Makin' Mamas - Getting Girlie
Polka Doodles - Pretty in Pink
Do You Stack Up? - Glitter/Bling
Pixie Dust Studio - Ribbon
Crafts and Me - 3D Embellishments
Creative Belli - Children

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend whatever you are doing.  At the moment its very sunny here in Blackpool but I have not been out yet - I think its quite cold.  Thanks so much for looking and any comments you may leave which are always lovely to read - take care xx
