A Cute Ballet Dancer

Today's card is one I made for my friend to give to her granddaughter.
I embossed the base card with the Dandiya embossing folder, die cut the image,
then glued it to the purple card and cut the frame freehand.
I added Glimmer Dust to the skirt, head dress and stars.
The products I have used are:-
Couture Creations Embossing Folder - Dandiya
Lili of the Valley Art Pad - Just for Girls
Spellbinders Labels 18
Cuttlebug Alphabet/Number dies - Olivia
