Special Birthday Girl

Good morning. What's happened to the beautiful sunny sunshine we had earlier in the week? Hope it puts in an appearance again soon - I don't like these dull damp and miserable days :o(

Today's card was a request from my friend for her daughter's friend who loves ballet.
I found this fabulous image free here thank you so much she is adorable :o)
They have also started a new challenge blog - MilkCoffee Challenge

I started by making a card base using some of my scrummy Kraft card from QVC and Grand Nestie scalloped square.

The DP's are MME - Lush (my 29p bargains from Hobbycraft) 
Image coloured with PM's and Flexmarkers mat and layered onto Kraft die cut with smaller scallpoped square nestie and then onto mat PATP with Martha Stewart Scrolled Lace punch.

Sentiment - Hobby Art Clear Sentiments stamped and heat embossed with clear EP 
Number 5 - Basic Grey Alphas and Numbers - coloured with PM to match
Satin Picot Edge ribbon from stash 
Marianne Rolled English Roses to finish :o)
