Follow your heart...

Last weekend I went to see a local musical society's production of 42nd Street, one of my favourite old time musical movies. The show was great fun and the tap dancing numbers were amazing. Last night when I sat down to do some crafting, I pulled out Moulin Rouge Tilda, from Magnolia's Once Upon A Time collection. She reminded me of the chorus girls in 42nd Street, dancing and following their dreams to stardom.

To add some interest I made this a double card, the  frame tucks under the Oval greeting that is raised up using dimensionals - here is how it opens:

I saw this idea in a YouTube video: Stampin' Up! Flower Shop Double Card and thought it would be fun to try this technique. 
Here is the inside: 

Here is another closer look at Tilda:
