"Dance Is The Hidden Language Of The Soul" Martha Graham
This beautiful Ballerina Stamp was the inspiration for my card. The dancer and the ballerina shoes were colored with Copics and then fussy cut.  I used the brown oval die cuts on the sentiment, shoes, and ballerina to tie it all together. I added the finishing touches to the card by embellishing it with ribbons and pearls!


Here is the link again to Serendipity Stamps for all the details.
