One little ballerina - two cards

Hi everyone, I am back with a couple of cards that I was able to make over the weekend. They are for the Digital Pencil Too challenge, and a few others too. My daughter already made and entered her card for Mo's children challenge, and of course I just had to play along too. I decided to make a card using the cute "Lil Ballerina" image. When I got her, I also purchased the tiny dancer elements set, that include the ballet slippers and the sentiment used on the first card (along with some other digis).

Above is the first card I made. Coloring was done using faber castell polychromos and copic markers. I was inspired by the watermark Mo used on the sentiments in the tiny dancer elements set, so I used a old stamp from SU to stamp a heart onto the sentiment. Papers are from Prima Marketing.

When my daughter saw the card, she wanted me to make one for her birthday the same exact one, but using blue shades instead of pink. (She just got moved up to ballet 3 and their class color is light blue). 

This one was completely colored with faber castell polychromos pencils. I used a set from Whimsy Stamps set "birthday greetings", and like on the first card, I used the same heart to stamp onto the sentiment. Paper is also from Prima marketing. My sewing machine messed up on the top left so I had to add a little flower there to cover it up.
