Happy Birthday Card For Nancy

Hello everyone!!  Yeah!  I am posting a card again!  This one I made at my friend, Heidi-Mari's house.  I came down to Cape Town with my dad, who is working here for a while to stay with her - we have really had a good time card making, blogging and fellowshipping!!

Nancy, my ten year old sister is turning eleven years old in October, on the 14th.  She loves all things ballet, so I decided to make her a card with ballerina paper which Heidi so kindly let me use! 

This time I decided to try something new - I made my first easel card - it was so much fun!!  As I have said before, I like to do something new on each card I make.  I just know she is going to love it! 

I took part in the following challenges with this card:

Sweet Stampin - Vintage
Stamp Something - Something Flowery
Creatalicious Challenges - Something 3D
Your Next Stamp - An Easel Card
The Creative Cottage - Touchy Feely
Digi Doodle Shops Best - Anything Goes
Stampin For The Weekend - Recipe
The Crazy Challenge - All About Birthdays
Ooh, La, La - Birthdays
Craftalicious Challenges - Birthdays
Simon Says Challenge - Going Dotty
Create 4 Fun - Flowers
Heidi-Mari is a designer for Stamping for the Weekend.  I am very excited to be taking part in their challenge which is a recipe: 3 Designer Papers, 2 Flowers, 1 Ribbon and an added extra of gems or charms (I used pearls).

So here is my card:

This little stamp looks just like Nancy!

These are such pretty flowers and suite this card so well!  The pearls in the middle also fit perfectly with this card!

I love this pink ribbon with all the dots and spots!  Most of my cards have spots somewhere on them - I am a dotty girl!  I think the ribbon really brightens up this card.

I love to distress my cards a lot, as you can see!  With so much distress, the card looks 'vintage'  and 'old' which I really like!

Here is the inside of the card:

So that is my card for this week!  I really enjoyed making an easel card and shall definitely do another one again very soon!  If you haven't ever made an easel card, then I suggest you try one!  Here are the basic instructions.

I hope you are all enjoying your week so far!!
