Birthday Wishes. . .

Hi everyone, I thought I'd show you these cards I made yesterday for a young lady and a gentleman who's birthday is today... (they are both ballet dancers - hence the theme...)

My little ballerina's move...I cut round their bodies and then drew some legs and cut round them, then attached bodies, legs and card with a butterfly clip..(hope this makes sense...) I drew the stars direct onto the card.... and voila... Dancing ballerina's with stars..... look forward to popping over to Sunday Sketches that is being hosted by Heather at Rose Hill Designs to see what you have all been upto.... I'm really late with this post as unfortunately I spent all of Sunday being ill...I didn't go near my computer once...am feeling a bit better to day.... hope you all have good a good week..
