My Surprise part one.....

Hi Susan here....

Imagine my surprise when I was given one of Emma's beautiful gift card holders on Christmas morning.....only to find that inside there was a piece of card carefully folded in the little pocket with an digi image of a beautiful ballerina printed on it and a little sentiment from Emma to 'enjoy using her'....

To say THANK YOU for this wonderful gift, I have made Emma this Thank You card.....can you imagine having a digi image designed just for you, nobody else has it...just me!!!! I was so excited!! I have named her 'Suzette' partly because my name is Susan and then because she needed a posh name!!!
I have used bits and pieces from my stash for the backing paper, distressed the edges and added glitter to them. The corners of the gingham paper have been punched with a corner punch and the gaps filled in with glitter. The lace and pearls are from our local market.

I have to say THANK YOU also to Christina Dee who designed this image for Emma to give to me....Take a look at the next posting Christina thats for you!!
I have used Promarkers to colour the image and because my backing paper is embossed with flowers I cut the ballerina out and put her on top of that beautiful paper.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the leaves are my handmade ones. The little pearl hearts are from The Paper Mill Shop.

My sentiment ticket has been designed by Ann Vento and can be bought from Raindrop Echo Designs.
I have coloured the edges and glittered them. 

I am entering the following challenges

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card and for all your wonderful comments that you leave for me, I am very grateful...I hope you liked it.
Love Susan
