Tiny Dancer

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! :) I hope you are having a wonderful day and have some fun plans for the weekend. Hopefully those of you with all the snow are starting to be able to dig out. Luckily, we didn't get the blizzard here, but it sure has been cold, brrrrr! Well, I'm excited to share my card with you today so I'll get right to it :)

Ever since I got the Twinkle Toes Lite Cartridge from Wal-Mart on Black Friday, I have had this card idea in my head. I finally had a chance last night to put pen to paper so to speak. I started by first cutting out this adorable stage. I sized it in my Gypsy and it was an unusual measurement to make it fit inside my 5 1/2" by 5 1/2" card. I don't have the measurement in front of me right now, but if you would like it, just let me know and I can get it to you (everything is saved in my Gypsy). Once I got everything for the stage cut out, I put all the pieces together and then I did my doodling with my white gel pen. Next I cut the dancer out (again, she was an unusual size, if you want the measurements, leave me a comment or send me an e-mail and I can get them to you). I used my "hide contour" feature on my Gypsy and hid her face. I then used my Princess Face Assortment Stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps to create my face. I used some chalk to give her cheeks some "blush." I then put all the pieces of my dancer together and then doodled around the image using my white gel pen. Next I put my card base together using SU cardstock. My DP is from DCWV Nana's Nursery Stack (both boy and girl stacks). I then adhered my stage and my dancer to my card base with dimensionals. For a finishing touch, I added some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Well, I hope you enjoy my card today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and a wonderful weekend! :)
