Paper Craftin with Erica

Dancing & Dreaming

Last week, my daughter earned her Pointe shoes.  She is 16 and has been dancing for over 12 years.  Although dance was never her forte, she stuck with it and loves it more and more every year.  She is a Junior in high school, so she only has one year after this one left to dance at the studio.  She is so excited for this new adventure… Pointe!  In honor of this awesome news, I’m posting a couple of “dance” cards.


The card above was very fun and is my favorite of the two… I just love the ballerina, which is accented by the skirt colored with Copics and adhered with pop dots.  The card below uses the same ballerina stamped with a very light pink to make it look more like a watermark.  The stamp set is from Fun Stampers Journey (one of their bloom boxes – formerly known as the kit of the month)… I just love the dancing phrases included.


Challenges entered: 1 – Crafty Catz (anything goes); 2 – Creatalicious (anything goes); 3 – Simon Says Stamp (think pink); 4 – Sisters of Craft (anything goes); 5 – Through the Craftroom Door (anything goes); 6 – Craft Your Passion (anything goes).  Enjoy!!  Thanks for visiting!  XOXOXO
