Tutu-rific!

I am so enjoying having a three day weekend and a little time to play in my stamp room. One of my friend's daughter will be turning four and she so loves her dance classes, so I made her a "tutu-rific" birthday card. The inspiration for the layout of my card comes from the Week 4 sketch challenge at Get Sketchy. I am really enjoying their sketches and they are giving away great prizes! I always love the pink, black and white color combo! And this week the My Favorite Challenge in the MFT forum at Splitcoaststampers is this use these MFT colors.

The stamp and sentiment is from the MFT set Isabelle Paper Dolls. I colored her with my copics, paper pieced the tutu and added a little glitter with a glitter pen. I drew in the wood floor and the ballet bar. I laid out the rest of my pieces and did a little sewing. I used a SU slot punch to run my ribbon through, added a charm, and used some great crochet lace at the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by,
Melody
