Joyful Ballerinas

I recently won blog candy from Cindy (she is so sweet :>, check out her blog). With the candy came a wonderful joy fold card (here is the tutorial from SCS). I am sure that I made this style card at least once in the past, but it is so nice to be reminded to use it again. This card is for a swap that I am taking part in for UStamp (see side bar for a link to all the fun). It is my first swap, so hopefully I am not breaking some unspoken rule by posting the card, LOL. One of my sweetest friends let me borrow a couple of her stamp sets, including All in the Family. As soon as I saw the tutu accessory, I knew I wanted ballerinas and the SU Raspberry Tart paper is still laying around my work area - I keep reaching for it, so why put it away?! If you are tired of seeing it, don't worry because sadly I am down to just scraps. I wish now that I had bought more, because there are such wonderful prints to choose from, including the small dots that I used to paper piece the tutus.
Details: SU Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi & Rose Red CS, SU Raspberry Tart DP, SU Black Ink, and Wild Wasabi Ribbon. Techniques: Paper Piercing and Paper Piecing.
