Ballet Dancer Card

My friend, Benjie, requested me to make her a
birthday card with an image of a ballet dancer that she can display on her desk. She used to take ballet lessons and told me that she misses her ballet dancing. So I came up with an easel card using a design from the online store which was perfect for Benjie's request. I love the color combination that I used, pink and dark chocolate brown. My favorite on the card are the ballet shoes. The shoes are a separate design which I also bought from the Silhouette store. I tweaked them using the node editing tool until they fit the feet of the ballet dancer perfectly. I created the dress using the same ballet dancer design. I created the frame using the same design used for the base of the card by doing an internal offset.

Here is a tutorial on the easel card:

All the designs used on this card were purchased from 
the Silhouette store:

Ballet dancer: dancer_C20091017003545_2581
Ballet shoes: ballet_shoes_C20091016235517_2581 
Base of the card: 3_labels_C00800_20509 

Since all the designs on this card were purchased from the Silhouette store, I won't be able to share any file for this card. I do hope that you will still leave your comment :).
