Cute ballerina

Hello lovely people,

I'm still all over the shop with what day it is this week but I really think I could get used to working just 2 days a week!

So, having figured out it's Thursday that must mean it's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme for you is...


We are very kindly sponsored for this challenge by The Ribbon Girl with a £10 voucher :-)
I think pink and cute are just made for each other!

Handmade card; pink and girly featuring a cute ballerina

I know lots of you will agree with me that LOTV images are some of the cutest around and they don't come much cuter than this gorgeous little ballerina.

I did have to do a teeny little bit of clever cutting with the star wand to use the size of circle die that I wanted, as there was already plenty of white space around the image so I didn't want to use a bigger circle.

Of course, I just had to add some girly details with a layered bow and some flowers :-)
