Let's Dance


I recently made this card for a friend who enjoys dancing with her husband.  I thought it would be a nice Valentine's card.  The dancing couple's image is from MFT stamp set May I Have This Dance and the Eiffel Tower from the set Who's That Parisian Girl. I paper pieced her dress with My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Madison Aveneue paper and coloured the rest of the image with Copic Markers (Skin - E000, E01, E13, E31; Man's attire - C01, R85, R89, E43, E74, E77, E49; Background - E00, E93).  I added the Skyline border in background just off to the side (but..did you notice my paper was cut upside down? {lol})

I just had to decorate the inside as well, because May I Have This Dance set comes with so many gorgeous sentiments.

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed it with detail white embossing powder, on a dark chocolate cardstock.  The hearts were cut with Hearts a Plenty Die-namics, the larger heart with patterned paper & the smaller heart from with glittered red felt.

This card follows the sketch this week at MFT, I flipped the sketch sideways:

Have a happy, happy Valentine's day!!

You have a romantic streak in you :). Love the sentiment that says "I love dancing through life with you".
