Sugar Nellie Design Team Card - Abi Ballerina

Good morning all.

I hope you're all well and enjoying the lovely spring weather here in the UK - and to all my international friends I hope you're all having good weather wherever you are.

I know I usually post my Sugar Nellie Design Team on a Thursday, but my posting day has now changed to a Wednesday, so without further ado here is my card for this week. As I can feel a spot of spring in the air, I decided to go green and fresh and use one of the cute All Dressed Up (ADU) rubber stamps.

Isn't she pretty in her little tutu!! She's called 'Abi Ballerina' and she's available in grey rubber from the Funkykits online shop. She stamps beautifully and is a dream to colour; I coloured her with my with Copic markers and added a touch of glitter to her dress so she would sparkle and shine.

Here's What I Did
I started with a 7" x 7" white card base and matted it with green card and 2 different patterned papers. To cover the joint of the patterned papers I added a green border strip with ribbon. I stamped my image onto my colouring cardstock and coloured it in with Copic pens, the finished image was then die cut it into a circle along with a green mat which I glued together. I chopped off a section of the circle topper and added it to my card base. To finish off I glittered up her tutu, added few die cut sequins (yes I created my own!), a bow, gem and some pearls.
