A Sweet Ballerina for PDCC and RCC

Hello!!  I am going to quickly post a card today that I created for The Play Date Cafe as well as RCC14.  I have had this super cute ballerina (or fallerina as my 2 year old calls it) image from My Favorite Things for a while and thought it would work perfectly for the PDCC92 colors.

I used Copic markers to color in the image with the challenge colors (coral, petal pink, antique gold) and added a few highlights with a Sakura jelly roll pen:
The background is embossed with an embossing folder from Silhouette.  I stitched around the edges with some coral colored thread and then added some antique gold colored crochet lace at the bottom of the card and tied a soft pink ribbon above it.  I finished it all off with a button and SRM Sticker.

Here is the challenge photo for The Play Date Cafe:

I just love the sweet soft colors from the challenge image and I was partially inspired by the dress in the upper right side.

Here is the challenge at the Ribbon Carousel:

I hope you enjoy my card today as much as I enjoyed making it.
