Aurora Wings Flower Ballerina

Good morning to all my very special friends and  followers. I'm quite pleased today to be sharing a card I have made that isn't for one of my Design Team challenges. I was asked last year by a friend to make a 65th card for her . The recipient loves the theatre and ballet so I decided to use this Aurora Wings digi stamp I have had for ages and never used its a beautiful stamp called Flower Ballerina and  I loved painting her. The ladies birthday was yesterday so I'm safe to be sharing it with you today.
