"Tiny Dancer" - Happy Birthday Ballerina card

Edited to add: My Ballerina card won Top 3 at Totally Tilda and Deep Ocean challenges.

Good morning! I hope you're all having a lovely week. Today, I'm sharing a card I made using my beautiful "Tilda with Ballet Shoes". She has been sitting on my desk for a couple of weeks now, but last night I just had to ink her up. I think this is my favorite stamp from the new Prices & Princesses collection. I love her little tutu dress, her ballerina shoes, her hair... she is just too sweet!


I also got to use my new Spellbinders Die cut: Floral Ovals. Gorgeous isn't it? The flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pattern papers are My mind's Eye. I only used one base layer to enhance the beautiful 4" wide lace I placed across the card.


I made my own decorative pin with pearls and a decorative base from my local craft store. My beautiful tag was cut with Magnolia's Heart Doohickey die. I decorated it with some ribbon, lace, a tiny rose and this cute little ballerina charm.


Miss Tilda was colored with Copic markers: Skin: E13, E11, E00 and E000. Pink: R35, R32, R00 and R000. White: C5, C3 and C1. Shadows: W5, W3 and W1.

 I also added a couple of little pearls for Tilda's earrings and some Crystal Dust for some sparkle on Tilda's ballet shoes and tutu! 


I would like to enter the following challenges:
Just Magnolia: Lovely Lace
Totally Tilda: Happy Birthday Tilda
Deep Ocean Challenge: Song Inspiration (Tiny Dancer - Elton John)
