The challenge at the Global Design Project is a sketch this week….

Sketch Challenge

My card is for a special little girl’s birthday and I know she will love it as she loves ballet.

I used a newly retired set for this card, Sparkly Seasons which came out in the Holiday Catalog.  I really love the images, especially the snow globe and intend to hang unto this set.

I embossed the white circle with another retired embossing folder and then used Blushing Bride glitter paper behind it for a hint of sparkle.  The ballerina is fussy cut and adhered with dimensionals.  I also added another layer to her skirt with dimensionals to make it puffier.  I did put some Wink of Stella on her tutu but you really can’t see it that well in the photo.  The banner is stamped on vellum that I first sponged with Blushing Bride ink.  I stamped it in Versa Mark and embossed it with silver embossing powder and used the Large Number Framelits to cut the banner out.  It is finished off with a few sequins from the Blushing Bride Sequin Trim.

The inside sentiment is from the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set and the stars are from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set.  This set is great for little background stamps.  If you have it, check it out!  The envelope is lined with a sheet from the Subtles DSP pack.

If you have a dancer in your life, this is the perfect little card!

Thanks for stopping in today….enjoy your Friday!
