Dance Like No One Is Watching....Crafty Addicts New Challenge

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Bloggers and Followers....I would first of all like to warmly welcome my new followers, Annabel and Valerija...Hi there and thanks so much for joining my 'Krafty little world' ... please feel free to stop by anytime!! And now on to business...I'm here sharing a little DT inspiration for The Crafty Addicts new fortnight challenge that starts today... Our sponsors are Melonheadz, who are offering 1 bundle to winner and Morgan's Artworld, who are offering 3 digis. For my project I have used Morgan's Artworld image Ballerina 2, which you can purchase here. Isn't she just gorgeous?! ... As always our challenge is 'Anything Goes' but you could try our twist of 'Add a sentiment'. The sentiment I have used is a free one that I found online. The layout is similar to one that I remember seeing on a card a few years back, but can't remember where unfortunately... but this is my take on it...what do you think of it?.
 My Project
Products Used
 Morgan's Artworld - Ballerina 2 image
Crafter's Companion - Watercolour card
ProMarkers - Sandstone, Caramel, Sunkissed Pink, Pale Pink, Antique Pink, Pear Green and Leaf Green
Copic Ciao - Skin White and Pinkish White
Wink of Stella - Clear glitter
Spellbinders - Decorative oval dies
Britannia - Rose leaf die
Die-namics - Fancy flourish die (small)
Docrafts - Papermania backing papers, ribbon bow and pink fabric flowers
Creata - Ivory silk backing card and pink mirror card
Stickles - Cotton Candy frosted glue
From my stash - Lace velvet ribbon, Orchid flower, Rose flowers and buds, brads, pearls and gems

Taking a plain white 8x8 card blank, I printed the sentiment at the bottom right hand corner, then I placed various length (1.5 inch wide) paper bunting, in two colour tones. I printed, coloured and cut out image and layered on to die cut mirror card, then I edged with Stickles glue. Once dry I positioned as shown, the finished off by adding flowers, die cuts, pearls and gems.
