Combining two of my favourite challenges

I am so happy to be blogging again, I get so much inspiration from other card bloggers and also from the many challenges available to all of us, I plan to hang around this time. On this challenge I combined two of my favourite CAS challenges. I recently purchased the ballerina stamp from Petittatti on etsy and it was the perfect image for this card. 

For this card I printed the image and sentiment directly onto the white cardstock. I added the diamante's to the ballerina's dress. As I was doing this I thought of the actual costumes that ballerina's wear and how a lot of them are handmade, can you imagine the amount of work and time that goes into making each costume. 

Two of my closest friends are not doing too well at the moment, I will be giving them each the same design card which will hopefully cheer them up.

Well, this is just DARLING! I have a ballerina myself (my 13-year-old daughter) and I wish I had this image...because I'd make her a card just like this! Love the along, love the sentiment. So glad you joined in the fun at CASology this week!

This is great...I love the simple lay-out and the silhouette image. So delighted that you joined us at Word Art Wednesday. A new challenge is starting today and I hope you visit us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word found in Jeremiah 29:12-13 and the Lord tells us, "Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Have an awesome day!
