TPC - Pastels

Happy Friday everyone,

Here's hoping you had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend.

Today starts a new challenge at
Totally Papercrafts
and as I'm hosting this week I choose "Pastels" as the theme.

I've coloured with Copics a Ballerina from AuroraWings that can be found here.
I challenged myself in creating this vintage style card. 
The most difficult part was cutting into the gorgeous Pion papers...and then distressing them!

Card size is 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches
Sentiment is a sticker from KandCompany Flora & Fauna
Shabby Pink Fran-tage embossing enamel
Small rosette cut from The Paper Studio ribbon
Lace from a visit to Buffalo Stamps
Glamour Dust added to her tutu

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Stamp and Create
who are offering a $20. gift certificate to the lucky winner

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Aurora Wings Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Little Fairies: Vintage/Shabby Chic
Creative Moments Challenge #39 - Things with Wings
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
