Born to Ballet Card

So on Black Friday Visible Image had the most amazing sale and anyone that knows me knows that my favourite combination is a sale, craft supplies and Visible Image so of course I had to put in an order ( well, actually two. Naughty me!).

One of the sets I bought was Born to Perform. I don't know anyone that does ballet, but my youngest daughter dances with our local street dance group and often takes part in stage shows so the sentiments in this set will be really useful to me as I document her performances in my scrap book. 

To create this card I first made a background with picked raspberry and spiced marmalade distress oxide. Then I applied a deeper layer of picked raspberry distress ink through the strobe stencil ( also by Visible Image). I stamped the ballerina in the centre, and used the stars from the set with versamark ink and wow embossing glitter. I also embossed the sentiment. To finish I dotted prefect pearls around and sprinkled ultra fine glitter on them, and added a thick layer of distress stickles over her skirt, which I sprinkled with coarser glitter to create a super sparkly ruffled look. 

I am entering this in the following challenges:
