Pretty Ballerina

Hi there everyone.  Hope your week is going well.

I finally decided to get in the craft room yesterday and have a play around with my Silhouette Cameo.

I wanted to design some ballet shoes to put on a card, and after fiddling round with the different shapes and point editing I managed to do it :-)

Here is the card I made.

I also made a basic easel card in Design Studio - just a circle for now :-)  The little ballerina is from the Polkadoodles Work and Play Collection 2.  

She is coloured with pencils and I added a little tiny bling to the rose in her hair.

The ballerina slippers are two layers, one pale cream and then the top layer is cut in cream pearlescent card stock, some ribbon tied round just like the real thing :-)

The heart is a die cut using the Spellbinders Borderabilities set Daisy Border Set.

Here is the collection I used.

** Work & Play Collection 2
