Ballerina Belle

Here is my gorgeous new Lili of the Valley stamp! I had so much fun colouring her-I hope I have done her justice! :-) 
I stamped her in Memento and coloured her in Promarkers. 
I used some stash the lovely Mary sent me , the pearlised decorated card, the larger flowers, card candy, and ribbon-what a great surprise when I opened my parcel from her :-) I hope you like what I have done with it Mary! 
I thought the swirls on the top pearlised card suited the ballerina's dance, so placed her so she was framed by it :-) Next I masked the join in the different card with the velvet ribbon and sparkly glitter strips. 
I then made the beautiful flowers and leaves into a gorgeous bouquet and glued it to the bottom corner. On the other side I placed a wooden filigree butterfly, and used silver gems to show its path across the card. Then  I stamped Lili of the Valley 'Its your day' circle greeting onto pink card and cut around the edge. I placed it next to the butterfly's path and lastly added the three pieces of card candy in the top right hand corner.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
