Hello friends and happy Saturday!  Time for another project using a great image and sentiment from Daydream Designs.

I used the set My Heart Still Dances.  This set also comes colored but I love to break out my pencils so I always get the outline sets.
 I love this image with just the feet and the sentiment is so inspiring.  I know it looks black in the photos but the bottom mat is actually dark brown.  The pink mat is what I consider classic ballerina pink.
 I inked the edges of the image and sentiment.
 I crocheted the 2 roses quite some time ago.  I made 5, intending to use them on a card and ended up only using 1.  They have been on my stamping table waiting to be used.  I think the color works very well here.
Here is the finished project.  This is actually a white lunch bag.  I folded down the top 3 times, punched holes in the sides and threaded pink tulle (another ballerina classic) through the holes.  I tied a bow and left a "handle" in the back.  You can still open the top, but the tulle keeps it closed to keep the contents a surprise!

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,

  3. Michelle, this is just precious. Love all the ballerina touches...pinks and tulle. So very pretty. Love the tones you used for the image and the inking that "spokes" inward is wistful and "star-like." So pretty! Do you have a link for the pattern for your crochet roses. I'd love to do up several of them to have them ready to go for cards. They are gorgeous!

  4. Oh my gosh is this gorgeous! Love the colors and that rose is amazing! I love it..and of course the tulle too!

  5. Michelle, this is so lovely...your colors, tulle and beautiful crochet rose. Those roses are so special to have, I need to find some on Etsy since I don't crochet. Wonderful card!
