Ballerina

A card for House Mouse and Friends Challenge which this week has a sketch to follow.

This card is definitely a case of 'more is not more'! One of those where I wasn't happy and kept doing more and more to try and rescue it. Another one to chalk up to experience. The sketch is definitely in there and hopefully whoever views it from HM and Friends will be able to see it!!

The HM Ballerina is stamped in black versafine and coloured with distress inks. I matted on Pumpkin Bazzil Bling and White card and used Pink Petticoat papers for the background in line with the sketch. The layer of Bazzil under the image panel was cuttlebugged with the swirls folder, I added a handwritten sentiment on a scalloped circle, three gems and far too much glitter glue. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
