Happy Birthday Holly

Morning!! Firstly I need to apologise for the rubbish photos! I have somehow mislaid the charger to the camera since our holiday... so my mission today is to find it! So I had to take the photos on my phone and at night too... yuck this weather is horrible... its like winter!  Anyway.... Amelia announced at 7pm last night that it was her friends birthday and she wanted to give her a card today... so went went through my little box... and she didn't want one of them, she wanted one with a ballerina one!

and so yes mummy spent some pennies and brought a new stamp just for Amelia's friend... Well she has quite a few friends at ballet that have parties soon so I'm sure it will be coming in very handy! This is 'The Lovely Ballerina' from The Paper Shelter.  I have a small collection of digs from there, I love them as they come with pre coloured ones too and sometimes thats what you need.  I did consider using one last night... But I didn't i coloured her up myself! 

She was coloured using Copics; 

Skin - E000, E00, E02, R20 cheeks, R81 lips
Dress, Skirt, Tights and Shoes - R81, R83, R85
Hair - E18, E15, E13

I used lots of paper from my stash, none of them had names on them so I have idea where /what they are! I also pulled out a charm and added a bit of twine to it, and to finish off a rhinestone flourish made using my Bazzill Jewel Template.  

All in all I'm pretty happy with how she turned out! I would like to enter this card into the following challenges; 

Karens Doodles - For The Kids
Creative Mondays - Anything Goes
365 Cards - Layers 
The Paper Shelter - Photo Inspiration 

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you soon!
