Abi Ballerina

Good morning to all my lovely friends and followers. Today sees the launch over at Crafty Ribbons Challenge of the latest challenge which this fortnight is Anything Goes always a very popular challenge with us crafters.
The prize for the lucky winner is a £10 voucher to spend in store

For my card I decided to use an All Dressed Up Stamp called Abi Ballerina I actually purchased this with a couple of other stamps then found you can download it from the Freebie page on the challenge blog !! Silly me but I don't mind really as I loved the image.
