Crafty Secrets Challenge CSSC70

"The Ballet"
(you can click to enlarge)
This card was made for this weeks Crafty Secrets SCS Challenge. This weeks challenge was to use a pocket on our project. I am still building up my Crafty Secrets supplies, so please forgive me for using the same stamp two weeks in a row. I just love this image and wanted to do something different with it this time. I embossed the mannequin two times and cut one out . I then added some tulle, ribbon, pre-made quilled flowers, a pair of ballet shoes, some Ballet tickets tucked in a pocket and some sewing details. I took a few pictures because it was really hard to capture the details of this card in one picture. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. I was trying to capture the feeling of back stage at the Ballet Theater....did I succeed?
