Craft Challenge Birthday Hop

Morning everyone. I'm hoping that this is going to be scheduled properly. Getting the times right over different time zones does tend to fox me occasionally.
This is a twisted easel card I made as part of a GDT spot. Sparkle and Glitter With Rick is taking part in the Craftchallenge blog 5 th blogaversary hop, Rick St Dennis is sponsoring this challenge to celebrate their 5th anniversary. The theme is, of course,

I used the image Everybody Dance on Zibbet and Etsy
It seemed to scream "celebration" at me
 Coloured with graph-it pens in various shades of pink and red (toned down with the blender pen) on the dress, then there's the brown hair and silver (grey) head-dress

Framed with a cut out using my new toy and more graph-it pens to colour the BG as pink is not a colour cs I have a lot of. Less now considering the amount of pink cards I've had to do lately, lol.
The BP is a digi paper from the, now closed (boo hoo), talents of Crafty Chaos - "Dancing with Fairies". This was matted onto black then pink glitter cs then more black (so that the back looked good)
Some black tulle and pink organza ribbons. The sentiment "It's your BIRTHDAY, Celebrate" forms the stop for the easel bit. Then there's the bling - pink and shiny for the girly-girl this is destined for.

I am entering this into the challenge at
