Ballet Goodbye

Hello Everyone!!  I was asked by a dear friend of mine if I could make a good bye card for her daughter's ballet teacher (who happens to have the same name as me.....but no, I'm not going anywhere!!  ;)  ).  I thought this sweet La La Land Ballet Marci would be perfect.  :)  My friend really wanted to put "Good Bye Miss Kathy" on it, so I pulled out my JustRite 15pt Times New Roman Font to create the custom sentiment!!

The base is made of pink bazzill in a long card (my friend wanted lots of room to write) and layered with white and some MME Quite Contrary DP.  Across this is some Old Olive punched with Fiskars Upper Crest border punch, layered with white and more MME DP.  Over this I've added some white satin ribbon.  I've stamped Marci in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (E000, E01, E11, RV10, RV21, RV13, G20, G21, V12, V15, E50, E51, E53, YR21).  I've cut her out with scissors and popped her up on foam tape over a layer of Old Olive cut with Beaded Ovals Nestabilites and white cut with Large Oval Nestabilities.  Next I've added some corner decorations and a rhinestone, the sentiment stamped and cut into a notched tag and secured to the ribbon with a bow.

Oh pretty card. Ballet Marci is certainly appropriate. Love the papers you've used Kathy.

La la la la la.... la la la la la.... I like the focus on green accents, brings a nice depth to the card and helps the paper to shine on through... I am sure Miss Kathy will love it!

Marci is colored so pretty! I love the green beaded oval behind her and the green corners really frame the card well. Great sentiment flag.
