You make me feel like dancing !

Happy Sunday to you all ! I sure hope you have had a nice weekend I have had a fantastic week as I was on vacation. I went to San Diego where I was born and raised and spent some time with my Godmother who is 87. The weather was just perfect so we were out and about the whole time I was there, I was acting like a tourist LOL ! Today being my last day of vacation I put together this little "Ballerina Tilda" she is one of my favorites for sure. I have colored her with copics, and then added stickles to her dress bodice and tiara. The pink background paper is "Bittersweet" form basic gray. The flourishes and matching paper backing Tilda (for some reason are showing as a black they are actually dark brown with white polka dots) is also basic gray from the "Porcelain" line. The band running in the back is from a glitter stack in my stash. The flourishes were cut with my wisblade.
I am entering my card into a few challenges....
