Dancing Anya

It's my friend's birthday on Saturday and we always go out dancing together so I thought it was the perfect excuse to get my ballerina Anya out :)

We also both love pink!!

I also thought I'd enter this card into a couple of challenges:
Stampin' for the Weekend - I used their sketch
Creative Card Crew - Ribbons
My Time To Craft - Theme of "Music To My Ears"
The Next Level - Buttons and Bows
Tanda Stamps - Dance The Night Away
Raspberry Ribbons - Circles
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Hearts

The lighting is rubbish here today but hopefully you can make out all the detail!.

Here's a close up of Anya

Here's how I made it:
Stamp - Ballerina Anya from The Greeting Farm. Coloured with H2Os and I've glittered her tiara using my sakura quickie glue pen and Doodlebug sugar coating glitter.
Papers - Polka dot papers are from Lili of the Valley.
- Hearts and shoes paper (just seen behind Anya) was a freebie.
- Pink grid paper is from Papermania Sweet Nothings Pad.
Ribbon is from Papermania Garden Floral Collection
Flowers are Prima and Brads are Making Memories Pastel Mini Brads.
Cardstock, Buttons, Gem and string are from stash.
I used my martha stewart doily lace border punch on the pink with white polka dot paper across the top and I used my white gel pen to add some extra detail to the scalloped circle. I then used my black gel pen to add some faux stitching to the circle Anya is sat on. Anya is attached with double sided sticky foam tape to give the card more dimension.

Hope you like it!
