Aurora Wings Ballet Dancer

Good Morning Crafters, well its stopped raining for a couple of hours but we have been promised some more this afternoon, and I see its been flooding down on the Severn this morning and its cut of Gloucester for those living near it. Anyway I printed this image about a week ago and I just couldnt decide what colour to do her, as shes from Swan Lake, and of course they are all white so thats what I plumbed for. I have coloured the roses on her headress and down around her dress and then cut her out with my Grand Oval Die from Nestabilities and used a fancy one for the mount. The sentiment is one I googled and then cut it out with a fancy tag die.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first mount of white pearlescent card thats been put through my embossing folder and then I have used a fancy doily towards the top and die cut a swan with one of the Tattered Lace dies and placed them at the bottom on the left.
Around the middle I have wrapped a piece of crinkled white ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount and then placed my mounted image towards the right. The sentiment was placed at the bottom below the image. And to finish of I have used several pink roses and some punched out rose leaves to create a floral spray in the top left hand corner.
