Ella The Ballerina


Hi everyone!  Today's card features the beautiful Ella The Ballerina 2 digital stamp from AiFactory.  The color combination actually happened by accident as I was looking for matching burgundy ribbon to coordinate with the patterned paper.  I didn't have the matching burgundy but I did have this gorgeous red and decided to the pair them together then colored the image to go with it.  The chocolate chip was added in to blend with her hair.


My card base is Chocolate Chip layered with Flourishes White then two different prints of patterned paper from the Scrappin Creations Power Pad.  I stiched around the edges then wrapped the red satin ribbon around the Flourishes White and added a beautiful bow.  The image was printed on Flourishes White and colored in using copic markers.  I paper pierced around the edges then layered it on Chocolate Chip cardstock.  To embellish the card I added a Metallic Gold Dew Drop in each corner.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
