Happy Anniversary

I created this anniversary card using this adorable digi from The Greeting Farm called Dance Fever.  The sketch that I used is from this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp.  The base of my card is cream backed in aqua.  I added a piece of dotted patterned paper backed in aqua to the middle right and a piece of aqua to the left side.  I added a strip of aqua and gray striped patterned paper across the middle. I colored the image using colored pencils and cut it out in a circle. I backed the image and sentiment in aqua and then again in cream.  To finish, I added three dark aqua pearls to the upper right corner. I also layered a white paper flower on top of an aqua paper flower and added a dark aqua pearl to the center and added it to the left of the image.
