Let's Dance

I created this card for One Stitch At A Time's Pretty In Print contest.  The image I used is called Ballerina and is from Stitchy Bear Stamps
The base of my card is moonstone card stock backed in black card stock.  I cut the image out in an oval, backed it in black and cut around it using scalloped scissors.  I punched 2 large flowers out of rain card stock and 2 smaller flowers out of moonstone card stock using daisy punches. I layered 1 small flower on top of 1 large flower and added a black pearl to the center. I also punched leaves out of black card stock and waterspout card stock using a rockfern punch and a branch punch. I layered these on the right side of the image and added a black pearl in each corner of the card.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
