Happy Birthday Ballerina

Happy Wednesday!! We're halfway to the weekend already!! It really is amazing how fast time flies. I've had this ballerina die for a while and wanted to use her, so I have a birthday card to share with you today :)


I have become completely addicted to my Zutter Distress-It-All. I can't seem to stop using it!! I am going to wear the poor little motor out :) The base paper is heavyweight cardstock from Canvas Corp. The patterned papers are from Prima's Lyric stack


The doily behind the flowers is from XCut. The flowers are a mixture of Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts. I added tulle and string behind and some white crinkle ribbon for the bow. The buttons inside the flowers are Die-Versions Buttons dies. The butterfly is another current obsession of mine. It's from Memory Box. I cut it once in black and once in the Prima paper. The corner gems are Prima Say It In Crystals.


Isn't this wooden banner awesome?? I found them at Joann...they are from Jillibean Soup. The Happy Birthday stamp is from my sweet friend Jo's new Personalize It stamp set. You can find it in her store 3 Twenty Crafts. It was stamped with Versafine Onyx ink.


I wanted to be a ballerina when I was five...I wore my pink tutu everywhere :) This gorgeous ballerina is a Marianne die. She was covered in Martha Stewart Carrera Marble Glitter, popped up with foam tape and balanced on the sentiment flag.

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, I'm sure it comes as no surprise that this is my new favorite of yours! Not only because of my ballet-loving heart, but also because of the incredible beauty! The papers are gorgeous, but what I most love (aside from the ballerina!) is the flower bouquet. :o) Flowers and ballet just go hand in hand... I treasured every single flower I was ever given after a performance! The tulle is lovely, the butterfly is gorgeous, and I love that you made the ballerina so sparkly. I don't even know what else to say, but since you know me and my heart so well, I'll trust that you know just how much I adore every single millimeter of this creation. I'm so thankful I had time to flutter here early today to see this... I wish you a day as breathtakingly beautiful as this card!

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
