There's dancin' & singin' over at Mo's!

This card is available in my Etsy Store HERE . . . 
with lots of other new creations. 
I'd love for you to stop by for a visit!

Now that we've gotten today's "infomercial" out of the way . . .

Welcome, welcome, welcome!! It's Thursday . . . and that means I have a new card for this week's challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! This week's theme is . . .

Dancing & Singing!

Fun, huh? So, here's what I came up with . . .

This sweet little image is called "Two Tu-Tus" and is available HERE in Mo's "old" online store. I colored these darlins with colored pencils . . . no Copics this time!! I know, rare for me to venture too far from my Copics . . . but I'm rather pleased with the results! Here's an extreme "close up" . . .

And a peek at the tag . . .
