No Marionette

Something I've not done for a few weeks.... Made a card "just because!"
Rick St Dennis presented the EDT with some new images, all gorgeous in their own way. I printed them out but only one got coloured after rescuing the sheet from spilt coffee. The others will get their turn, but in the meantime we have "Marionette".  I can't see it in the shop yet, but there's plenty more.
edit - Just added to shop - Marionette
I used the sketch over at Addicted to Stamps for some of my inspiration for the layout of the card.

The theme was easy once I'd read the choice of items given in Desert Island Crafters who happen to be sponsored by Rick St Dennis this challenge. I chose
4. Dancing
5. Music (7 Gypsies DP)
6. Something New - the image and the Die'sire die
7. Glitter
8. Gems
The image was coloured with promarkers with just a hint of ink distressing with "broken china" DI.
Added to a mat cut from a die'sire die.
A touch of stickles on the jewels of the big hanging bow on the image and the flowers. These white flowers were given some colour with a promarker.

The gems - they are in the form of a G-clef.
All attached to a white, linen look, card base.
