A Little Ballerina.

I've been honoured to win last week's challenge at A Day for Daisies with my most treasured card (you can read all about it here) and I've decided to make a card for their new challenge.

The theme is "Use Pink and Red" and I chose Little Dancer Two for my card.

I was a ballerina myself when I was younger even if without too much enthusiasm but, while making this card, I was inspired by my daughter.
She loves her ballet lessons, maybe genes passed directly from my mother to her...
Anyway, for me ballet is all about pinks and whites or baby blues so when I think of a ballerina she must wear a pink or white tutu.
I'm not so lucky with my daughter's tutus for her recitals: the last two were emerald green and yellow with hot pink details...
For sure, with those bright colors it was easier to see her group in the big theatre but they don't mean ballet to me!
That's why I was happy to color my ballerina with pink!

This is my card:
Isn't she lovely and delicate?
I colored this Little Dancer with my Copics and a touch of crystal glitter in her tutu, then mounted it on Doodlebug (Sweet Cakes paper pad) and Echo Park (Country Drive paper pad) papers. The little clouds and flower are from Toga. Lots of rhinestones give a special bling to the card!
Even if my daughter is not blond, I think of her when I see this card!

I'd like to participate in the following challenges:
