A(bi) for Ava

In amongst all the hustle and bustle of preparing for Christmas every year, my friends from my NCT class back in 2006 are all celebrating their eldest children’s birthdays – and this weekend is no different as it’s Ava’s turn!

Today’s card features a little ballerina that I am very fond of…Abi!  Abi is one of the sweet collection of stamps available from All Dressed Up (and she’s a freebie at the moment too!).  I’m also playing along with the current sketch challenge over at From The Heart Stamps, where this week’s layout looks like this:


And here is my completed card:

I have used a plain baby pink cardstock for the base of the frame, overlaying with a piece of Sienna glitter vellum by Docrafts.  Abi was coloured with Pro-Markers and a little sparkle, courtesy of a little Stickles.  The banner behind the framed image is cut from two layers of shimmery Centura Pearl cardstock (although it’s not easy to see in the photos), the bottom layer is a raspberry colour, and the top layer is an iced pink.  Final touches of a piece of ribbon and some little pink gems, both from my stash, and the card is ready to be written and posted off!
