Tuesday Morning Sketches #44

Good Morning!  Welcome to your Tuesday.  I am so glad that you're here.  I have a simply gorgeous card to share with.  Boy am I humble!  LOL  But I am really excited about this card.

This week is sponsored by Stef of Glitterbabe's Art Shop.  I am so proud of Stef - she was designing her own line of digi-stamps for The Stamping Boutique (love Tracy's images) but then she stepped out on her own.  She has a tremendous talent.  She was so very kind in sharing some images with me and my team.  I chose to use Little Ballerina.  With recital fast approaching and my daughter in her 5th year of ballet, this set was the obvious choice.


The theme of recital this is year is Las Vegas.  The ballet number that Hollyanne is in is called Waltz of the Flowers.  I colored this image to resemble her costume for that number.  It is this lovely burgundy and black with lots of toule.  I started this card with a mat from Penny Duncan.  This is a Fleur de Lis frame SVG file that is absolutely gorgeous!


Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White & Milled Ivory, Baroque Burgundy
Prismacolor Pencils:  Black, Blush Pink, Tucson Red - blended with OMS
Tools:  SVG File from Penny Duncan, SCAL/Cricut, circle punches
Embellishments:  Making Memories bling brads

I am so excited that I have the day off today because my Cricut Expression is supposed to arrive today!  I have sold enough (but still more to sell) of my stuff to purchase an Expression - my Mom can finally have her baby bug back.  Come on UPS Guy!

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Now head on over to Tuesday Morning Sketches, we'd love to have you join in the fun.
