Good Morning! Hope all of you have had a wonderful weekend! I have to apologize for the short post, but lots of pics. As some of you know, I have been dealing with my sick baby(dog - Punkin) and we were at the Vet twice Sat. and yesterday. Doesn't this image remind you of your daughter or granddaughter (or maybe even yourself) when you received your first ballerina jewelry box? I would wind mine up and sit and watch it forever and think and dream. This card is for one of my granddaughters and I think I will buy her a little ballerina jewelry box. She is 5 and takes dance lessons. Don't laugh - the butterfly is off of a hair clip one my granddaughters left her. I have never made this type of fold out card before so thought I would give it a try. The darling image is "Day Dreaming" from The Peekers by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. If you haven't seen the entire set, please check it out. They are all sooooo cute. She is colored with Copics with some Stickles added to her tutu and shoes. The swirl is a punch with a little Stickles added. The beautiful flower is one of the Petaloo - Mini Fabric Flowers. Susana has them in all different colors and each is different.
This is the inside. The bow on the top inside was made with my Bow Easy and the butterfly charm is from my stash. Entering the following challenges: Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Girls and Swirls Fussy and Fancy - Card for a Child Crafty Ann - Raise a Smile Creative Inspiration Wednesday - Punches and Dies Freshly Brewed - Flowers Creative Craft Friends - Swirls Paper Sundaes - Childhood Memories Crafts and Me - Glitter and Anything Goes

Just another pic to show a better closeup.
