Twinkle Toes

Good morning bloggers!! So this morning hasn't started off overly great for me... I was walking up the stairs with my camera (and today's project) in my hands and I stumbled, fell and broke my camera lens!! :( Luckily I was on my way up the stairs AFTER I just took pics of my project! I have already placed an order for a new lens so hopefully it won't take too long to get here. I use it everyday so I hope it gets here fast!! Anyways, onto today's project!

My Aunt asked me to make her a bag and matching card to give to her friend's daughter. She wanted something to do with dance since this girl is a dancer. I automatically thought of using soft colors but this girl is a teenager so I thought some "older" colors might be a better choice. I love how it turned out!!

- little ballerina is cut from Once Upon A Princess but her hair is cut from Paper Doll Dressup. I love the Once Upon a Princess cart but I really don't like the princesses' hair or faces.... Luckily there is Peachy Keen stamps for the faces!! :) SO cute! I used Tattered Angels Glimmermist on her black bodysuit (as well as the black background. See pic below for glittery effect) which I LOVE!! I used Pearl here - it's the only color I have - and it looks awesome on black! This is one product I am so happy with! Instead of buying expensive glittery paper in select colors you can make your own using a regular cardstock that matches the papers you are already using!

- embelishment the dancer is on it cut from Gypsy Wanderings and the white layer is embossed with Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder (as well as the pink layer underneath)
- 'Twinkle Toes' sentiment is from Pink By Design All Girl set (this is a GREAT set for everything girly!)

I hope you like it!! I also hope the girl who is going to receive it likes it!!!
