I have felt like I am living on the edge and after the 5 hour drive home tonight in the downpour rain where I could not see I think that is as close to the edge as I would like to be for a while. :)
This challenge was to decorate all the way to the edge and I really love using the die cuts to create a fun shaped card. Cut the card shape, printed a copy of my own hand drawn ballet slippers and colored with copics, die cut some Heartfelt Creations flowers and lightly sponged some pastel pink and green on the leaves and shaped and mounted. Finished off with some pearls.
I really look forward to seeing what you so on your cards all the way to the edge.

What a fantastic card with that amazing hand drawn image. You chose such a pretty shade of blue for the shoes. Luckily the beauty of your card overshadows the memories of my failed attempt with toe shoes when I was 12.

I knew this was yours the minute I saw those beautiful handdrawn ballet shoes and legs. The entire card is drop dead gorgeous sweet girl. Your colouring continually blows me away. If you ever start an online digi stamp business, I will be your number one fan (and customer) and I promise not to put a crazy bird in a tutu wearing these ballet shoes .....oh but then again.....

5 hours driving in that sort of rain! Yikes - I find an hour of heavy rain on the motorway leaves me shattered. The flowers and lacy edging create such a beautiful frame for your amazing drawing, Lisa.
