Lili of the Valley - A Sketch

Good afternoon peeps, hope you are all well. Do you ever have one of those days when you don´t have enough hours? I am already late for the St. Patrick´s celebrations round a the Peña but hope to get there within the hour unless something else crops up.

Anyhoo onto the new challenge at Lili of the Valley which is a SKETCH by our lovely Bev.


My friend asked me to make a card for her grandaughter because she has just passed her first ballet exam, bless her, I remember only too well running our girls around to their ballet, tap and modern lessons. I knew straight away which stamp to use because "Little Ballerina" fits the bill to perfection as does the circular sentiment also available from Lili of the Valley.


I coloured with my copics and used glamour dust to the skirt of her tu-tu, papers are BG bittersweet, lace, flowers and gems from my stash.
Challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Music & Dance
One Stitch at a Time - Glitter and Gems
Papertake Weekly - 3 of something ... flowers and gems
