Do you believe ......................

Everyone once in a while you come across a stamp set that whittles its way into your affections.  The stamp I have used today is one of these such stamps.

I am a firm believer that if you want something bad enough, and that if you work hard enough for it, you will eventually get it, and this stamp just sums that up beautifully.

I have a great friend (Via FB) whose little girl Abi, has just taken her Grade 2 Ballet Exam.   I know from her mum the blood sweat and tears that went into the practice and more practice, right up until the day of the exam.

Abi looked gorgeous in her Mum's photos, and so I made her this card to wish her luck and to let her know that I was thinking of her.

The stamp says

"She believed she could and so she did."

This is of course from the Feel Goods set. Its so versatile. I will admit I was delighted to see it in the new catalogue, I would have been heartbroken to have had to part with it.

 Heres the front/inside view

From the very front

 and with the matching envelope

Isn't it pretty.  I have combined Crisp Canteloupe, with white card stock for the card, and have made the layers stand out by distress inking the edges.  The envelope is Baked Brown Sugar, and was handmade to match the card using the Envelope Punch Board.  The flowers are all crisp cantaloupe and have been stamped using the Flower Shop set and punched out using the pansy punch.  The little green leaves are using the petit petals punch and the long leaves on the card are from the bird punch.  I finished it off with a few glimmer gold hearts.
