Coppelia

This week at City Crafter is the last one where we will be showcasing the lovely digital images from our sponsor Digital Paper Shop


I hope you've enjoyed seeing them as much as we have using them

This week our creator Kirsty is hosting for us and has given us the lovely theme of "Coppelia"
asking that we use an image of a ballerina on our projects ... 


Don't laugh but when I was little I always wanted to be a ballerina ... I was about 4 when I asked for 'real' ballet shoes for Christmas ... Boy I was so upset when they didn't have blocks in them .. how my Mum and Dad laughed ... as if I could stand on my toes just like that! 
So it was a pleasure to create this card ... I love the ballet Coppelia and to me ballet is soft and dreamy and full of glitter ... Of course I used one of the images from the Ballerina set by Janet


I even used some muslin and generous helping of glitter on the roses and the muslin


and I think I achieved the look I was aiming for


Our Guest Designer this week is a previous winner at City Crafter and I'm sure you will love her creations as much as we do ... say "Hi" to Tammy

We would love to be 'Wowed' by your creations too ... so please come and join us at the City Crafter Challenge ...

Till soon

Very feminine and so beautiful - you always inspire me to enter the challenge, but most often I don´t have the time to do so. Perhaps this week ;-)
Hugs,

So beautiful a card- I too wanted to be a ballerina and was wowed by the ribbons and tulle. A perfect card for the theme.
