I've got happy feet - Magnolia-licious July Inspiration Challenge

Oh wow, it's the 4th Tuesday of July already--the month is just flying by, LOL--so it's time for our monthly inspiration challenge at the Magnolia-Licious Challenge Blog. Here's my DT card.

Suzan is the hostess for the month and she has chosen this picture for your inspiration.

I will hope you will play along with us in our challenge. Check out the fabulous cards of my DT teammates for more inspirations at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog, HERE.  There is also a prize for one lucky winner of $25 Gift Certificate to Magnolia-licious on-line store.

The 'I've got happy feet' sentiment is a digi freebie that I got from TLC (thanks so much).  The other sentiment at the base of the card is one I typed on my laptop.    

This image is of Tilda Learning To Dance--she's just oh-so-adorable!  She is from Magnolia's newest collection, Turning Leaves Collection 2012--I'm having so much fun with this collection!  I've used my collections of alcohol-inkmarkers to colour her.  I've added glitter to her tiara, but I don't think you can see it in the picture below.

Full-size and mini Magnolia stamps are available at Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store. She also has a fabulous collection of cutting dies from Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn.  Her prices are discounted!!  And as a bonus, you also earn a 2% credit that you can use on future purchases.  Sweet! 

Challenges for this card:
I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge #126 - Sparkle (on her tiara and on the scalloped border of the sentiment at the  bottom) 
Tilda's Town Challenge #10 - Anything Goes
Card Makin' Mamas Challenge #50 - 1 image, 2 DP's, 3 embellishments
Colour Me Creative Challenge #48 - Anything Goes with a Girly Twist
