DP2 Challenge - Mo's Irish Dancer


I'm popping in with a card I'm entering in Mo's DP2 Challenge with the theme of "Dance/Singing."  I love to dance.  Some would argue that I am not the best dancer out there; however, in my mind I am a dancing queen. lol  I love all kinds of dance and one of my favorite shows is "So you think you can dance."  I watch that show religiously.  I hope to start taking some professional dance lessons soon, at least that is on my "Leap List." 

The card that I am sharing with you today reminds me of the Lord of the Dance - Irish dancing.  I don't know that this would be a dance that I could ever learn, but I love to watch others do it. 

Here's my card...

Little Irish Dancer

Close up

I started out with a 51/2 x 51/2 scallop circle card based that I created using my Cricut and the Make it Crafty Software.  I used my tiny punch to punch holes in the scallops.  I then layered green SU cardstock and dp from MME Stella and Rose 6x6 paperpad.  I created a decorative embellishment on my Cricut and layered the image on top.  I colored this dancing beauty using Copics.  I used YG05, YG01, Y11, Y00, YR12 (clothes); E01, E00, E000, R20 (skin), and E01, E08 (hair).  I finished her off with Stickles on her skirt and flowers from Wild Orchid.  I used a SU tag punch to cut our the flags and added sticker letters for the sentiment.

Thanks for looking and commenting.
