Nutcracker Ballet

Christmas and the Nutcracker Ballet go hand in hand. The Stampsmith challenge is shimmer, sparkle and shine. Christmas time is so much sparkle and shine, so I created a Christmas card. I thought that the ballerina from Stampsmith was a perfect stamp to use. The Christmas trees across the top are shiny gold and the background paper is all sparkly striped.
The Creative Belli challenge is winter and Christmas. My Christmas tree border has been in my stash for several years. Somehow at Christmas the roll usually disappears and becomes visible during the summer. This time I could actually find it at the right time.
Hels, at Ink on My Fingers Sunday Challenge, gave us the theme of Christmas. I think my card fits nicely.
