My DT card for challenge 127 over at One stitch at a time

Here is my DT card for our challenge over at One stitch at a time  this week, I can't believe how quickly each week is coming round at the moment.
Our challenge is
  Back to school
  and we are lucky to be sponsored by
Joanna Sheen 


Stitchy Bear Stamps

  I decided to make a back to ballet school/lessons card as the creator I was issued for this challenge did not have any back to school images.

I have used a Go Kreate die to create the shaped gatefold card. I got the idea from seeing a card over at Norma's blog and she has now done a fab tutorial which can be found here. 

The image is by Lil Diva and is called Chloes ballet lesson which I have coloured with Promarkers and Copics. The image can be found in The Stitchy store HERE

The papers I have used are from Nitwit Collections Tippy Toes digi download set.

I have used a Memory box die called Petal Party to create the flowers and added Craftwork Cards Card Candi in the centre and above and below the image. I have also added silver peel offs to each scallop on the scalloped circle.

I then added the word Ballet to a  blank ticket digi stamp and stuck to the card and also a Cheery Lynn die to die cut the butterfly.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
