I've been asked to make a special birthday card for a friend, and as the little one has just started ballet, my friend asked if I could incorporate that interest somehow.
I immediately thought of a cute Bugaboo digi image I have owned for over 4 years, and made this card for the precious little girl.
The ballet trio come as little stick figures, which I do love, but I had in mind to make ballet skirts for them this time. How I remember both of my own daughters (and later grand-daughters) loving the soft pink leotards they dressed in for practice. So searching pinterest, I found this idea - sponge vellum in pink distress ink (worn lipstick), then punch out with a scalloped circle, and fold in half 4 times - this makes it easier to 'pleat' into shape.
Of course, the card needed a little bit of sparkle and a big 4 - the stamped name used Stampin' Up!'s alphabet stamp: Brushwork Alphabet. I find it so easy to line up, and makes such a difference when personalising is needed.
I hope Hallie loves being 4!
