     I have several cards, EXTRA cards I want to make and post this week and this is one of them.  The challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil this week is black and white with one other color.  Obviously I've made a pink explosion.  LOL  I used a ton of punches and dies on here and even an embossing folder so I had lots of fun.  The image was colored with Copics and then I added some Stickles and a little Creative Inspirations Paint to her outfit.  For the center piece I first punched a strip with the Eyelet Lace punch and then another smaller piece with a scallop punch.  I added the ribbon and then took the same thread I used to sew on the card to wrap around the scallops.  I popped  a pearl in the center and I was so happy with how it turned out.  I added a little distress ink to the large flower to cut down on it's yellow tone and keep in more in the pink vein.
     Hope you like my little ballerina.  I'd like to enter her also in the Simon Says Stamp "anything Goes" challenge.
