My Dancing Princess

Today is the beginning of new fortnightly challenge over at Gingerloft Challenges with Add Those Flowers!

We wanna see flowers this week, weather it be one or many!

As always the top 3 will be offered a GDT position with us and  the random winner will also receive a Gingerloft Digi Set.

This week I got crafting and made an adorable Birthday card for my teen niece.
It features ribbon flowers with dry embossed leaves from handmade paper.  I also got out some of my corrugated card-stock to add some texture and dimension and I am just loving the colors all pink, pretty and girly.  

I find when I craft for the kids that I seem to be my playing my favorite song of all time and craft and sing along to; I hope you dance by Lee Anne Womack.  This is my fav song that I live by, it is always playing and I always sing it to my kids... You can see it on you tube HERE.  The dance theme for this card I believe came from this song being in the background.

This week I have used Gingerloft Digital Stamp Ice skating AND BONUS it's a FREEBIE :) 
You can grab it by clicking HERE.  Please be kind and leave a comment for Tami, link back to the site if you use the image and we would love to see what you create so please post back and share your creation(s).

Enough talk and time for some pics!
