Good day bloggers, I hope you've had a good weekend.
We're looking forward to watching the Oscars tonight but first
we will celebrate our beautiful daughter's birthday!

Here is the card I made her using Ballerina 2 by Morgan Fitzsimons that you can find here. As many of you might know, Allie danced for many years so I think she will love this image. 
I've planned a special dinner that will be done early.  We must watch the red carpet as it's a favourite with the girls!  I've not seen all the films this year but did manage to catch Argo last night and was talented hottie that Ben:)

 I embossed my new JustRite
Lace Background stamp in white on pink paper...then cut it out...(lovin this one) 
Coloured with Copics
MB Floral Circle
WOC flowers & lace
MS leaf punch
Lil Inker Designs Sentiment stamp
Stamp Simply Store - pleated ribbon and velvet rickrack
Rhinestones from stash

Here's a picture of the box to hold the card.

What a gorgeous card, Pat! I love cards with multiple elements and textures, it's a style I'm really poor at myself. Your card has a lovely shape, and I like how you've placed some of the elements over the edge. Your choice of colors is perfect for this ballerina themed card! And what a great box you've made for your card too!
