Thank You 'Dance' Teacher

Hi folks!
Well, it was my twins last Ballet and Tap lesson before the summer break and I thought this Gorjuss Girlie would be just the ticket for a card for their dance teacher. I had fun following lots of challenges for this one. Cute Card Thursday has a 'Thank You Miss' theme. The Sketch is from The Saturday Challenge blog (extra option being Ribbon) Papertake Weekly wants us to use our favourite things (mine have got to be these Gorjuss Girls at the moment) This weeks Copic Creations is 'Brunette Hair' (I found the tutorials on their blog really helpful) Creative Card Crew wants to see ribbons. Cupcake Craft Challenge is Blossoms and Butterflies (what a lovely challenge) Stamp With Fun has a theme of Shapes or punches. Cute Daisy May is asking for three of a kind (I have used 3 yellow glittered dots in the top right corner) Not sure if I can squeeze in the Colour Create challenge ' Yellow, Green and white' as my paper has touches of orange and blue, but I have tried to keep to the colours for the most part.
The paper is by DCWV. I used my scalloped Nestability to cut the Yellow Glitter board and circle Nestie for the circle which I embossed with my Cuttlebug before inking the edge with distress inks. I used vellum for the rectangle panel that I also embossed. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and I used a little distress ink and glitter to colour it. The glittered dots are from a pack from QVC. The ribbon was a freebie from a magazine. I cut the sentiment from Funky Foam with my new Quickutz Banana Split font. I coloured the Gorjuss Girl with Copics and glittered her wings and detail on the dress.
Ciao for now!
