Heartfelt thanks ballerina

Hi friends!

I'm popping in really quickly to share a card I made for someone that sent me quite the gift. I'm sure many of you participate in blog hops. I happened to have won a prize not long ago and the person not only sent me the prize but also included TONS of extra goodies in the package! Lovely goodies...tons of goodies! She wrapped all the extras in these cute little envelopes and it was just such a lovely surprise. I was so grateful and touched by her kindness. So, I wanted to send a card back letting her know I appreciated the gifts. Here's my card:

Yes, I'm still on my Copic coloring kick. And yes, I used the ballerina image Kristina Werner designed for the Copic Online Card Class. I just love this image! I wanted to add some polka dots to the front of the card to just add some interest. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I heat embossed it. On the ballerina, I wanted to add some gems around the bun of her hair so that it looked like she was wearing a tiara. And every ballerina should have some sparkle so her shoes and the tulle under her tutu has Wink of Stella. I added some more gems around the sentiment and the card was done. Such a fun card to make!

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
