Twinkle Toes is one of my favorite cartridges.  I haven't used this cut before.  When I saw the current "Let's Dance" challenge at BBTB2, I knew what to do.  This card is based on a sketch Challenge at FCCB  All of the solid papers are DCWV, the patterned is Hobby Lobby.  I Used MCT border die on the left edge.  I ran the croc thru the cuttlebug using Tiny Bubbles/  I hand cut the banner, the gem is from my stash.  Oh and to make it more fun I put my sweet dancing gal on an Action Wobble.  I am also linking to DL.ART-Thankful Thursday Linky
