Ballerina again

Here I am again, with my second little ballerina. This is a general little card, with no home yet, but I so wanted to use the second ballerina that I coloured up I just had to make something quickly.

I have seen this little round style card on various blogs in the past and have been dying to try it. I think my image might have been just a bit too big, but I made it nonetheless. The card does stand on it's own, I held it by hand so the image and ribbon didn't look all skew :-))

It was coloured with my prisma colour pencils, and cut out with nesties. All the cut outs were done with my round or scalloped nesties.

The inside was also cut with my round nestabilities template and I tried the method described on the package to make a card base with a nesties template. It turned out to be a lot easier than I thought :-)

I am VERY sad to share with you that the whales were all euthenased. They managed to get some back in the sea, but the whales kept turning around and swimming out to the beach. They decided to rather put them to sleep than to allow them to suffer further. It seems that a navigation error on the whale's part caused them to do this, but I am pretty sure it is some man made intervention that caused it.

If you haven't yet been to the Elzybells blog or website, do go and have a visit. They are having some really great specials for June. There will also be a new release in June - so much exciting stuff happening....

My next stop, father's day cards... just a pity neither my Elzy nor Bella stamps have arrived yet. It seems they might have been lost in the post... I have had sleepless nights for the last 3 nights worrying about my orders. It sucks!

Such a cute little card! Love your ballerina! So sorry to hear about the whales.... it's so sad when you try to help them and they turn back....I'm like you - I think something manmade screwed them up! Too bad!

If you were closer, I'd give you some of my Bella images, but I think your order will arrive before any images I'd send....
