Flaunt It Fridays Challenge - Twinkle Toes

Hello and thanks for stopping by today. It is the first Friday of the month! This means it is time for another fun challenge at Flaunt It Fridays. This week we are flaunting any cut from Cricut Lite Twinkle Toes cartridge. For my project, I made an easel card using Dancer1. I started with a 4 1/4 x 11 inches piece of Colorbox white textured cardstock and scored it at 5 1/2 and then again at 2 3/4 inches. When folded the card size will be 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. The patterned background paper is cut same size as card. For the mat, a piece of white cardstock was cut 4 x 5 1/4 inches and run through the Cuttlebug using the Scroll Works folder. This gives a nice frame for my little dancer. The dancer image is cut at 4 inches using each of the key functions. 
The three hearts and Dance are each cut at 3 1/4 inches using each of the key functions. The blue heart is embossed with the Cuttlebug Hearts Folder for a little more dimension!
I used gold trim at the dancer's waistline, gold Stickles on the bows, and lots of inking. Dancer and the heart mats are pop-dotted.
Now we would like to see your paper projects! The design team display fantastic projects for your inspiration this week. Be sure to visit and leave some love! Remember, if you do not have Twinkle Toes cartridge, you may use a similar cut from another cartridge!
Just a reminder that Flaunt It Fridays will only have challenges on the first and third Fridays of the month. This will give you more time to submit your project. So have fun and we look forward to seeing your projects!
Hope you enjoy my little dancer! Your comments are always appreciated!
I am entering this at Creative Sisters Monday Challenge---Embossing!
