Sketchy Sunday at 365 Cards


Well, I still wasn't feeling too well this morning, but as they day went on I got back on my feet again. So, I needed to do a card for a friend's daughter who is having her 3rd birthday this week. She is a little ballerina, so I had to use that as a starting point for her card. The image is from Steve O'Connell. It's a pencil drawing, so I printed it and did a little chalking. Then, I added some irridescent glitter to the little tutu. (If you click on the photo, you can see it close up). I've used Basic Grey papers and the Martha Stewart lace punch. The color in the photo is weird, but the background paper is sort of mauvy/purple and the others are a mixture of pink, black and purple. The "S" was cut with Cricut's Alphalicious. Her name is Savannah. Don't you just love that name?! I think Savannah will love the little tutu and the bling I've added. I did this one based on the sketch at 365 Cards today. So, thanks for stopping by!
