Dottie challenge

Hi folks
sorry i havent been around lately but time seems to have run away with me this last couple of weeks. I am now working for my darling hubby, he has his own courrier franchise and is rushed off his feet.
Anyway i wanted to make Karla a little something as she is feeling a little lost in the big city, having to fend for herself. so i thought of making her a name plate for her door at the boarding house, I had the song title Dancing Queen and the picture of ballerina Dottie all planned as this fits karla to a T.
I used Ballerina dottie coloured with prisma pencils and blended with sansador then decoupaged. i used an old ribbon that i saved off a chocolate box. The papers are londe Moments Minaisie moo. the background usinf 12x12 and the letters using 6x6. The letters were basic grey ones that i used as templates.
