Live, Love, Dance

This young lady is my great niece, Leah.    She's growing up so fast and is very sweet and prettyShe recently had a dance recital and her Mom posted this picture of her in her dance costume on Facebook.  

When I saw the image I'm using today I wanted to color it for her.  I originally was going to make her a card but after I got the image colored Donna said, "Mom, it's too pretty to just put on a card." So we decided a frame would be a good idea.  So I went to Michael's (any excuse to go to Michael's) and found this frame.  I painted it white and inked the edges with CTMH Blush Ink.

I cut a 5X7 mat from pink sequined paper, added the digital image.  This image is from Aurora Wings and is called Flower Ballerina.  I love this type of digistamp.  I colored her with Promarkers.
After placing the mat & digi in the frame, I glued lace around the frame.
I then cut leaves using the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge, added flowers, gems, flourishes and a lace bow to complete the frame.  The lavender flowers are off-white inked with orchid ink. This is my finished product.  I must say I love the way it looks.
I hope Leah will like it.
Here are a couple of close ups of the flowers.

I know this has been a long post but I wanted to give you details so you can try it.  Thank you for coming by today.  I would like to know what you think.  God Bless You!!!!  Peggy
