Happy Dancing

Ahhh it's been so long since I last made a card! I had family visiting and we spend a few fabulous weeks together, it was sad to say goodbye as usual but it was time for me again to do some crafting! It was not easy to get started again but then I ended up having so much fun!!



I decided to play in Mo's Digital Challenge this week, the theme is "Dancing or Singing". I thought of this image right away, it's one of my favorites, and the girl just looks like she is doing the happy dance. The image reminds me a  lot of my daughter, wearing her favorite tutu and then what better shoes to pick than boots LOL.

She has been colored using my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.
The papers are from My Minds Eye lime twist line. I just loved the colors and decided to color my image to match the paper.

I simply embellished with some twine and a button, both of which I just cannot seem to stop using for many months now. The sentiment is from one of my favorite Whimsy Sentiment Stamps "Circle Pennants". It was cut out using Whimsy's Circle Pennants die.

Here are the challenges I combined here:
With this card I am also trying out for a guest designer spot at Mo's Digital Challenge, I would love to guest design using Mo's image, they are so much fun to color and create with!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Enjoy the rest of you day!
