Mo's Irish Dancer!

How cute is this little darling!

My daughter Ceri, has been an Irish Dancer for over 12 years after joining a class that Kate, her cousin was attending (you may remember me getting 'stressed' over Kate's Wedding Stationery last August).
We've travelled all over the country for competitions and go to Ireland every year for the Championships.
Now Kate has started her own class and Ceri is going along to help out - tonight was the first class and they had 20 Irish Dancer wannabes attend! Kate popped in to see me after and said it went really well :)

This is the card I made for Kate to give her a little bit of moral support - she was so nervous, bless her.

I used Prisma Colours to colour Mo Manning's gorgeous Irish Dancer and blended with Sansador (Reminder to self - DO NOT chalk edges after using Sansador....Yucky patches, not nice!)
The sentiments were done on the PC and the papers are from, yes you've guessed it - First Edition Desert Blooms!
The flowers were simply punched and a brad used for the centre. I couldn't find any suitable ribbon so went with a line of DST covered in Glimmer Dust. A sweet little clover charm and a 'home-made' (mini punched heart) clover leaf.

Some challenges I'd like to enter my card into...
