Ballerina Tilda 2 drawer easel card!

Hi there!

I just wanted to share a girly project with you that I gifted my next door neighbour for her 11th birthday.  I have been wanting to try this idea for a little while now and I knew I had to use Ballerina Tilda.  I followed the basic idea for the box over at SCS here.  I customised the measurements to fit my square card.  Tilda is coloured with copics.  I threaded pink ribbon to mimic her ballet shoe ribbons and added lots of flowers, sparkle and pearls.  The paper I believe is DCWV.  The drawer handles are Tim Holtz's hitch fasteners - love these!!  I am entering this card/project into Charisma Cardz Challenge  and A Spoonfull of Sugar this week where they both have the challenge 'Anything Goes'.

Here's a close-up of the main image. 


The sentiment is from The Stamp Barn - isn't it gorgeous!

A quick update with regards to my son - he had blood work done to test for an overactive thyroid as he is currently suffering from hair loss (he is only 8).  Thankfully his blood is perfectly normal and there are no thyroid issues which is fantastic news and we're now on anti-fungal cream for his balding patches.  Hopefully that will work before it gets any worse.  Phew, it's been a rough ride for him the last little while so I really hope and pray things start settling down.  Thanks for all your concerned comments ... they really mean a lot to me.

Well, that's all for today friends.  I hope you enjoyed my very 'pink' project!  I always appreciate your visit and your comments so thank you as always!

Take care,
Danielle x

Danielle this is one beautifukl creation hunny, sove everything.
I'm pleased your son's thyroid is o.k, poor little chap, let's hope the cream works and sorts it out. A friend of mine developes bald patches from time to time and her's has been linked to stress, not good when she was helping organise her daughters wedding, bless her she wore a huge hat to hide it
