A Ballerina

It's a Public Holiday here in Malta, celebrating Victory Day. You would think we went out for the day... NO!!! ... had the kitchen finally done, hooray hooray :))) so spent the day cleaning up the mess! Well, it's the only day we could do it as I will be away for the weekend .. ha ha yes.. and it's to do with packing bags again he he :) I'm off to Vienna for the weekend with my workmates... awesome :) But that's not all, it's paid by the company where I work, you know, like a yearly bonus! Last year we went to Sicily for a day and this time we're going to Vienna for 2 days/ 1 night. I'm so looking forward to this as I've never been there!

This is a card I managed to finish off. It's for someone who is leaving their office job to have more time for their passion, hence the image. Very different from the ones I usually do.. 'cos I'm not using any promarkers and I'm also using glitter, which I hardly ever use.

Well, I got me this pink glitter from Orlando, and decided to use it on the ballerina and on the papers as well.

The papers were a freebie in one of the issues of the Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. I thought they were so beautiful that it was a pity to hide them under lots of embellishments and other goodies.. unless it's my mojo gone haywire after my holiday!!

Beautiful card Dora I love both the papers and image as well and the punched border and bow. I think you were right not to cover up the gorgeous paper with embellishments, it look just gorgeous as it is.
