Fireworks ....................

 
The new challenge at Papertake Weekly is 'Fireworks' and this is my DT card.  I love this cute little ballet dancer image from LOTV - I used a ready printed die cut image and changed the shape with a nestie.  Can you see the sparkle behind the white circle?  It's actually a Christmas tree decoration sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer Mist to match my colour scheme.  I fastened a diamante star ribbon slide to my ribbon bow using button twine
 
 
The paper is from a LOTV Nitwits pad, the ribbon is 32mm aqua glitter organza and I used half of a Zva clear crystal swirl for the 'fireworks' coming from the ballet dancers star wand! The silver corners are from my stash.
I have to say I was quite daunted at the thought of making a card on the theme of fireworks, but once I got my idea sorted out I really enjoyed making it.  I'm entering this card intothe Totally Gorguss challenge 'bling it on'
