My first thought when I was getting ready to make this card was pink colored shoes…as you can see I totally did a 180! It proves, though, that not every image needs coloring!

The shoes were stamped in Adirondack Denim and hand cut. I also used our sister company, ODBD, Beautiful Borders dies. The embossing folder is by Sizzix.

My next sample called me to use one of the Crazy Critters line and add Buford to my scene. Ahh, what a relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle!

The trailer and trees were masked to create the scene. I had my all lights pretty colored, then thought, “Oh, I’ll add some gelly roll glaze pen to give them some dimension”…. WRONG! The pen wasn’t clear, so now there is dimension but little color!
The sign and Buford are hand cut and popped up (fish).

What ballerina wouldn't love your rhinestone tough. I love the blue and white color scheme. And your camper scene is absolute perfection-gelly roll pen snafu and all!!!!

Love both of your cards! The ballet shoes are so elegant and your camper is a riot!

Lovely cards Dawn using the new NCC Release! The Ballet card is very striking in B&W, love the scene you created with the Happy Camper Set, Fishing Buford worked out great with that set!
