Lilia's Card

Good morning - I do hope you are well and happy! We had a fabulous day yesterday - we went to Manchester to see the Lion King. Even though we were up in the Gods right at the back it was amazing - loved it all - and so did my mum and Bez and the girls - a wonderful day out! If you haven't seen it do try to - if you have weren't the costumes and the movements so amazing - loved it all.

Today I've got a card to share with you that a friend commissioned me to make for her 6 year old Grand-daughter Lilia. The brief was pink and maybe purple and ballerina plus her name. This is what I did:

The image is from The Paper Shelter and is coloured with promarkers. The charm is from the Ribbon Girl and the Ribbon from the pretty little Ribbon shop. The flowers are WOC. I cut a grand circle and folded it then added one of the smaller lacy circles with the image in. Behind the image is some pink mesh from the Ribbon Girl. My friend was pleased - I just hope Lilia likes it too!
