Ballerina card

I was commissioned to make a ballerina card for a 4 year old's birthday, so I based the card on Sweet sketch Wednesday 29:

I'm also linking for Flutter by Wednesday 89, which this week is an open theme, but, of course, has to include a butterfly, fairy or angel. I know that strictly speaking this is a ballerina, but she is so sweet that I'm sure she could be mistaken for a fairy! Using a combination of lemon, pink and lilac fits today's Paperminutes 94: 'colour explosion' - to use at least three colours.

The pink and lemon hearts card is part of the Dawn Bibby cupcake kit (but I thought it was just right for this), the ballerina, the strip across the middle and the sentiment are from the 'music and dance' kit from QVC. The other bits and pieces are Jolees and unknown stickers. The pink heart gems at the top left (they look red here, but they are pink) are Poundland bling.
