Hi everyone! Hope you had a great week! I'm sitting here shaking my head in disbelief at how fast this year is going by. Mid June already. It's time for another fun challenge over at Crafty Friends Challenge Blog. I'm happy to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #34 - Inspired by a Song. Come on over and play with us! We have some great sponsors this time:

My inspiration for this challenge came from the song "Tiny Dancer" by Elton John. I used the adorable 'Abi Ballerina' digi from All Dressed Up Stamps for my corner pop-up card. You know I love my fancy folds and when I came across this one on YouTube, I had to try it out! So much fun! I chose these papers because they match her hair color, and added a pretty pink gingham double loop bow to match her little tutu and hair band, all to bring the yellow and pink together.

Isn't this little gal just the cutest ever?! I've had her in my digi stash forever - she was a freebie from All Dressed Up Stamps a while back. You can't see the sparkle in the photos, but I used clear Wink of Stella on her tutu and hair band, and then added some pretty stamped pink flowers and sequins.

Here is a side shot of the card opened up so you can see the fun way it's made.

I used label dies to cut the inside sentiments and layer them, and added a few more of the stamped pink flowers.

Love these sweet 'dancing' sentiments. And, by the way, this card does fold flat for mailing. ;)
