Forever dancing in my heart


Hello ladies! Today’s card is a very special one. It is for the most important person in my life, my precious daughter.  She is growing up so fast, she turned 17 two weeks ago. What can I say about her?  She is an incredible human being, a great daughter, a lovely granddaughter ,a sweet niece,  a loyal friend, an excellent student…OMG, she has so many good qualities, but hey, she can really get on my nerves too, she is a teenager!!
For this card, I used two images, Magnolia's Tilda Ballerina and Mo Manning’s Odette. I choose them because dancing is one of her passions, she loves to dance, she transforms when she is dancing, she really loves it. I colored the images with Copics.  The design paper is from Magnolia, the flowers from Wild Orchids Crafts. The ribbon, charm and other embellishments are from my stash.  I am including a lot of pictures because the card has so many details.  And here it is, I hope you enjoy it.
