For a Ballet Teacher

A friend asked me if I could make a wedding card for her daughter's ballet teacher and I said yes without thinking of what stamps I would use!  Then I panicked a bit, and then I found ONE little stamp of a sweet ballerina and paired her up with some roses.  All the children in her class signed the card and gave it to her and apparently she (and the children) were totally thrilled!  Phew!

Paper: cardstock (PTI - Soft Stone); Neenah
Ink: Hero Arts (Bubble Gum mid tone ink); CTMH (Pale Pink dye ink); Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps: CTMH (Ballerina & Roses); PTI (sentiment)
Other: MFT Bow die

I just love how this turned out, the pink on that Soft Stone cardstock with the white is just simply yummy. And that lovely paper bow with the tiny rose bud I added to the centre and a touch of stickles for shine.

Have a fabulous Sunday!
