Ballerina Tilda

Hi there friends,
I have a card to share using one of my new Maggies. I thought the Prince & Princess collection was a really cute one so it was hard to exert some self-control & not buy 'em all :)
Here's my card:
 This one is one of my favs. It's called Tilda with ballet shoes. Isn't she so cuuuute!?

Here's a closer peek at her:
She's colored with Copics. I've been looking for a good color combo for med African-American skin, but just haven't pinned down the right one :( I used E33, E35, & E37 for her. Hmmm, I gotta keep looking... well, her tutu & the flower on her headband got a double dose of Cotton Candy Stickles. I let the thick layers dry in between applications & that helped to create a chunkier effect. The tulle flowers are from Prima & I've had them forever! They finally found the right card to make their debut. The papers are from the London Market collection from Pink Paisley.

I used this week's sketch at The Cutie Pie Challenge: but I forgot it's also supposed to be an easel card. Doh! No can do this challenge :(
I'd like to play along in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts: Anything Goes
Make it Monday: Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp & Show: Anything Goes
Magnolia Stamp Lovers: Flowers
Do You Stack Up: Use a flower

Thanks so much for peeking.
