Party like a princess


     I have been so busy with DT work lately that I haven't made a for fun card in forever.  Well, I love playing the Seize the Birthday challenges and I'm about to run out of time to play which is pitiful because it's been a month long challenge.  I've been chomping at the bit to get to color up this little cutie from Wendy Burns.  I had seen her on someones blog a while back and then again on Ann Marie Governale's (her version is just breathtaking) and just had to pop over to Wendy's etsy shop and buy her.
     The card is an odd size, 4 3/8" x 6 3/8" because of the Spellbinders Fancy Lattice die I used.  I put some pretty floral MME paper behind it.  The image is called "Abi Ballerina" and Miss Abi was colored with my trusty Copics and given a Stickles dusting on her headband and tutu.  I went with rolled roses for the flower spray.  I mean what else do you give a ballerina but a bouquet of roses.  And I know just exactly which little ballerina will be getting this for her birthday in a few months.
     Hope you like the card and a huge thanks to all of you who have contacted me about sending postcards.  I can't wait to start getting them.  ☺

  2. Tracy, she is gorgeous. I had to pop over to Wendy's Etsy shop to check her out...found others I love, too. Thanks for the link (and enabling...lol). The lattice background is so pretty and looks wonderful with those amazing rolled roses. Love the variation in colour and intensity. Abi is charming in her sparkly dress and headband. She makes me smile and sigh.
