Today the sun is shinning but still a little windy and not as warm as it has been but I am certainly not complaining about that, lol.
I mentioned in my post on Sunday that I was going to post my second Ballerina card and here it is, I chose a completely different colorway than my first card.  I was inspired by the song 'Ballerina Mine' by Nat King Cole, I used Graph It Markers for the image, the papers are from Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque) I have had them for ages and ages but the pattern and colours fitted what I wanted for the image, I added some yellow organza ribbon and bow, a rose cluster resin flower, pink flower and a sentiment.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I would like to thank everyone for their comments on my previous postings I really appreciate them, I hope that you have enjoyed your visit, please come back soon.
