The Red Shoes

Growing up, Hans Christian Anderson with Danny Kaye was one of my favorite movies!  I love Danny Kaye (always thought he was kinda cute and endearing), I love musicals (all forms) and I wanted to be a ballerina for a short period of time, too..hehe.  Well conveniently, my twins (definately not my oldest!!!) LOVES Hans Christian Anderson.  We've been on an HCA kick for days here at the farm, so when Guylou offered this image for turning out 300 members over on the CDAC group (wooohooo!), I immediately thought of The Red Shoes in the film.  Well it just turns out that Guylou's Inimitability's newest challenge is Red. 
So drawing from my Red Shoes inspiration, this is my take on the challenge:
Image:  Alexandra by Guylou's Inimitability
Paper:  Martha Stewart Essentials
Digi Paper:  Lindsay's Stamps Stuff
Sentiment:  taylormade (The sentiment reads "Never, Ever Doubt the Power You Possess") 
Martha Stewart Craft Seam Binding half-inch ribbon
Pearls from my friend Theresa Gerber
