Challenge # 200 at FCCB Pick a Holiday

The weeks challenge at FCCB is to make a project for any holiday, including birthdays. My idea was to build up my stash of go to cards. The card I made could be used for a feminine child birthday of any age. I made a Ballerina Monkey using Create-a-Critter cartridge.

I used "Birthday Wishes" DCWV stack for my background and the sentiment Celebrate.  The monkey is cut at 5". I made the ballerina tutu out of tulle and ribbon. I made the bow and added the flower and flat back pearl. To make the ballerina slippers I tied ribbon around the feet and tied it in a bow then traced the feet onto pink paper and cut them out. I adhered the slippers over the ribbon.

I think she turned out adorable. I have a couple of little nieces who would like her too.

Join our challenge this week and make a project for any holiday. 

Bye, Bye for Now
