Ballerina Birthday Girl

Ballerina Birthday Girl
I've had this Ballerina bear wood stamp for several months, but never really thought about using it until now. So, I used black ink to stamp it onto white paper, then I used Gingerbread chalk ink with chalk applicators to color it in. I also used Pixie Dust and Pink Grapefruit chalk inks to color in the tutu and shoes. Then I used my 1/2 inch corner punch on the corners.
The cardstocks that I used are white, gingerbread, and a very light tan. And to give my card an added touch, I used a pastel pink ribbon and bow at the top with a pink heart button. The sentiment is a sticker embellishment. I also ran my dots embossing folder through my Sissix Bigkick before I attached everything to the front of my card. And this completes my card. 
This card is also posted in this weeks card sketch challenge. I enjoy playing along with the challenge, even though my cards aren't as gorgeous as the ones posted in the challenge. Any suggestions on how I can improve my cards or what I could have done different are greatly appreciated. I am always open to any and all suggestions. 
Thanks for checking out my blog.
