Ballerina Fairy Taking A Ride

Hi everyone! It's time again for a new challenge at The Pixie Cottage. As always, there are two parts to the challenge and you may choose either or both to play along with. We have a fun new sketch and this week's theme is "Fussy and Fancy". My card highlights the Ballerina Fairy Taking A Ride rubber stamp by Pixie Cottage Stamps.

My card base is True Black layered with White Cardstock then Love You patterned paper stitched around the edges. The shadow layer is Adorable patterned paper layered on True Black. The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. I added some Diamond Stickles on the fairies wings. To embellish the card I added Berry Sorbet Grograin Ribbon and a matching bow as well as silver rhinestones in each corner of the card base.

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