Twirling By!

I can't believe it's almost the end of February already! Spring will be here before we know it! 

I hope you have enjoyed all of the Birthday cards we have been sharing with you this month. 

I have one last Birthday themed card to share with you this week. Meet "Dancing Ellie". How fun is Ellie in her tutu!

I stepped out of my colour comfort zone with this one - I don't usually do many purple/mauve cards but I am happy with how it turned out.

After colouring Ellie with alcohol markers, I cut her out using a classic oval die. A matching cardstock stitched oval die was cut to mount her on. The sentiment was done on my computer, printed out and cut with a fishtail banner die. Some matching twine and gumdrops finish off my card.
