Strictly Ballroom!

Hello, friends! Long time, no see. Work has kept me away from the craft room, but I am ba-a-a-ack! The theme for the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge this week is Anything Goes, and the theme at the Cut It Up Challenge is Twilight, so I am sharing a birthday card made for my daughter's friend.

This gal and her husband are ballroom dancers so I had fun with the WMS art deco themed sets and my Silhouette Cameo machine. 

The dancers are made from a file from the Silhouette online store, as are the deco borders top and bottom. I pressure embossed the lady's white dress in my Cuttlebug machine. The train and underskirt are made with glittered cardstock. This is really nice quality stuff from my local stamp store - no shedding with handling. I used it to mat the stamped sentiment and the black embossed background.

I picture these two dancing at twilight, and the purple glitter also makes me think of twilight. 

It's fun to personalize cards for recipients. Take THAT, Hallmark! Why not join in the fun at these two challenge sites?
