Annie's First Ballet Recital

Hi Crafty Friends,
It is my niece's FIRST Ballet Recital this month! Of course I had to make her a Ballerina Card! This image from Digi Doodle Studios is absolutely DARLING and looks just like Annie! It's called Sylvie Ballerina. I included some pictures of my sister, Lauren and I in our first ballet outfits and Annie in hers. If you can name the critters on our belts, I have a SPECIAL PRIZE for you. I'll check the comments for the right answer, first one wins (Lauren you can't enter)!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Did you take dance classes as a kid? Do you dance now?
A: Me? YES! I took ballet but was not very graceful, so switched to sports...softball, basketball, running, tennis, volleyball etc. but started dancing again in high school when I made the cheerleading squad.

I stenciled the background with Uniko Studio Fun Flower and Distress Oxide Inks. I colored my ballerina with copic markers and die cut her out from Gina Marie Stitched Oval Dies. I accented the corners with I Am Roses Flowers and added the sentiment "BEAUTIFUL" because all girls are beautiful!
