Julia The Purple Ballerina!

I have made this card for my friend Julia becuase it is her birthday today! Happy birthday Julia!
My stamp is one from a range of stamps called La-La Land Crafts that I discovered last weekend when I went to a craft show. When I saw them I knew I was going to have to buy heaps of them and by the time I left the craft show I had accidently purchased 6 of them! This sweet little ballerina is called 'Marci Ballerina' and she is just gorgeous. I coloured her with copics and added a row of little pearls in her hair. My friend has lovely long black hair and her favourite colour is purple so I tried to colour the stamp to look like her. My flowers are spritzed with Glimmer Mist in 'timeless lilac', 'creme de rouge' and 'spring rain' (yes, I am obsessed with glimmer mist too and I am too scared to count exactly how many I have purchased....). I also used lace, ribbon, pearls, bling and gorgeous deep purple glitter paper.

Let me know what you think!
