"Believe" Ballerina Card

Here is a card I made for a challange at I used the Storybook cartridge for the scalloped rectangle and French Manor for the scalloped oval. I am new to stamping so I was happy with how the dress turned out. The dress reminded me of ballerinas so I went with that theme...hence the ribbon:) Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks Card

Here is a card I made using Create a Critter. This has got to be the cutest cartridge. I love the big headed little animals. This is a card I made for my daughter's swim teacher. I cut the fish at 2.5 inches and used a cuttebug folder for the "Thanks" and for the embossing on the background. Thanks for dropping by.
