On this card I used the D'vine Swirls embossing folder (DCWV textured cardstock) on the background layer and I sanded the embossing with my sanding block. The stamped image is a Stampin' Up image. I borrowed a bunch a stamps from a friend awhile back and had stamped this cute little ballerina that I've been waiting to use. I colored her in with my water color pencils which I've finally gotten the hang of using different colors to create new shades/hues. I used my Nesties label 4 and cut it on my Cuttlebug and stamped the word "dance" ( from a Studio g pack I had) with my Studio g pigment ink. The image is popped up on foam squares to give it demension. I also used my cricut to cut the scalloped oval frame ( used my Creative Memories oval cutters to cut the center from it) and ran that through the CB D'vine Swirls folder and sanded it as well. I added some of the pink trim that reminded be of a ballet tutu, and added some Making Memories mini flowers to finish it off.
