Allsorts DT call and fab sketch

I don't know if I'm too late for the DT call over at Allsorts but they have a fab layout sketch. I decided to make a card for our son's godmother whose birthday it is late this month, I can put it up on my blog as I doubt she even knows what blog land is as though she would no doubt love it her hubby isn't very into technology so the last time we visited she was managing with a connection that she had broke the connection on so it was a bit hit and miss. They wee suppose to be getting it fixed but as they are both early retired and have the means they are constantly gadding off somewhere with a better climate, or entertaining guests so never seem to have time to sort it out.
Anyway Pat loves the ballet, and to say I have known her probably nearly 20 years I only learnt of this passion last year. I know that she wanted to be a ballerina when little and apart from her height she has the build, but people of our age as children lots of us wanted to be ballerinas and did ballet lessons, I know I did ballet and tap, and often got into trouble for practicing tap on mums freshly polished tiled kitchen floor as I left silver lines all over it, and I loved tottering around on point. With Pat's love of ballet in mind I thought this stamp would be perfect.
 I colored her a pink tou-tou and the early mornings and artificial light don't show the sickles highlights very well. I continued the pink theme through the papers with pale pink , cream and pink and embossed pink. I finished it off with a bit more sparkle. I know Pat loves pink as on one of the cruises they went on she has a Princess wall plaque in her kitchen and it's pink- proper girly unlike me!

Well as I said Allsorts have a DT call so good look to them finding the right poeple to fit in with their style and team and here's hoping Pat will like her card.
