Michelle Perkett Challenge #24 - Favorite Color Combo And

This is a Free Standing Pop-Up Card, and my entry for the challenge.  I used the most adorable Bunny Ballerina.  One of my favorite color combo's is red and pink.  We also had to add some lace and pearls.  This is how the card looks when it is folded down to put in an envelope.  I think my finger adds something to the card.

This is my little ballerina popping out of her box!  I printed her on Neenah card stock, and colored with copics.  I used crystal clear Stickles for her wings, and a glitter pen on the flowers and dress.  I added a Prima Caboodles flower, and ribbon.  The corners were cut and embossed with a Fiskars punch.
I used pink Bazzill card stock on the front with some lace and beads.  The sentiment is from CC designs also layered on pink and then red card stock.  The designer paper is from some of the scraps I had lying around, and I can't remember who makes it.  The butterfly and pearls are my dollar store treasures!
Just a quick note, thanks to Michelle and everyone on Michelle's group at PCP for your help and understanding with my email take over.  After a long and frustrating day, things went back to normal, or as close as it can get.  I was so happy I didn't have to start all over with a new blog.  You guys are the best, a big hugs comes to you from Montreal!
