Hello everyone: The sentiment on this card says some pretty amazing words that I deeply believe in. 
I think I've followed this quote to the letter pretty much all of my life, after all, if you don't try something because it might be hard, you will always wonder if you could have been successful.
I don't know if any of you have heard THIS SONG BY LEE ANN WOMACK, the lyrics always make me very sentimental, I hope you like it.
I'm not a ballet dancer but one of my Triathlon friends has a ballet studio so I often make her some tags with this beautiful ballet shoes image to give to her new students along with some goodies when they start taking the classes.

I stamped the image from Stamp Addicts on vellum with Stazon black ink and dried it a bit with the heat gun, then colored it in the back with SU markers. I stamped the sentiment (from Hampton Art) on the front. The pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley (discontinued line), ribbon and charm from my stash.

I always finish the inside of my cards, saves me a ton of time when I mail them.

The sentiment is from Stampabilities and the flower from a retired SU set called "Fast and Fabulous"

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

Moving Along with the Times Challenge #57 "Add a Charm or Tag"
In the Pink Challenge #126 "Ribbons and or Bows"
As You Like It Challenge "Christmas or Not Christmas and why?"
I have a good stash of Christmas cards so I wanted a little bit of change.
Brown Sugar Challenge #272 "Breast Cancer Awareness"
Alphabet Challenge "Q is for Quote"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
