Ballerina Birthday

Here’s a card for a 7-year-old who loves to dance! The green layer is embossed with the Cuttlebug, using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The ovals were cut using the Cuttlebug and Nestabilities large oval dies. I stamped the tutu on Whisper White in basic black, and then outlined with a sparkly gel pen. It is mounted using foam tape on the ovals. I finished with a sparkly pink ribbon tied in a bow, and mounted with a glue dot. The enveloped is bordered with another Stampendous stamp in Basic Black, and colored with Copics. Cardstock

I don't have the talent to make the card, but would love to send one to a grandauter who is serious about ballet. Will you sell one?
