Prima Ballerina

Good morning wonderful bloggers and welcome to my little part of blogland!  Today I have a card I made using one of Mo's fab images which I have had a while and never used - doesn't that sound familiar?

I have coloured her with Copics and the papers are by Bo Bunny from the Ambrosia Collection.  The sentiment is LOTV and I have used a Lil' Inker die to cut it out.  The flowers are made with a Tonic punch and the gems in the centre are from my stash.  The leaves behind the flowers are a Marianne die and the heart bow is Memory Box.  I have followed this week's sketch over at Sketch Saturday for the layout.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Love to Create - Anything Goes with a Sentiment
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
The Pink Elephant - Hearts
Dream Valley Challenge - Girls Girls Girls
Joanna Sheen - 3 Papers 2 Embellishments 1 Image
Totally Gorjuss - Flowers
Totally Papercrafts - Let's Dance
Charisma Cardz - Hearts and Flowers

Just a bit of housework then the dreaded supermarket dash and then hopefully some crafty time for me today!  I hope you all have a fabulous day whatever you are up to.  Thanks for popping by, see you next time! Take care xx
