My Surprise part two....

Hi Susan here....

This card is my second THANK YOU.....this one is for the designer of my beautiful ballerina 'Suzette'...
You have to take a look at Christina's blog it is out of this world!!!!

I have made this card especially to say THANK YOU Christina for designing this beautiful image of a ballerina for me....I am so pleased with it and can't wait to keep using her....
I found the most beautiful piece of vellum that is printed with purple/lilac and pink flowers all over it and thought it was just perfect. The backing paper for the topper is from my stash and has been distressed and glittered. The ribbon and pearls are from our local market.

Here she is....MY 'Suzette'....coloured using Promarkers in shades of purple, to match the background papers and vellum. I have added glitter to her tutu and eyelids, after all ballerinas are special people they need to look their best when they are dancing!!!

My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts but the leaves are my own handmade ones.

My sentiment ticket has been designed by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. The edges have been coloured and glittered.

I am entering the following challenges..

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

  5. Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 600 so far !

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
