Ballerina Birthday

It's my granddaughter's 5th birthday on June 25, and I made her a special card.  She's a real girly girl, and loves pinks and purples, lots of bling and dressing up.  One of her favourite activities this winter was ballet lessions, although her mother didn't like putting the jello in her hair.
The image on the card was made using the Build a Flower punch, with the body made using the tab punch; the neckline using the 1 1/4" circle punch.  I am not the first person to make a little dress like this and I have to credit Sandy Hancock with the original idea.

The skirt is made of vellum coloured with Strawberry Slush ink before punching it out.
