Floral Dancer.


Good morning friends and visitors, my card today I`m sharing from Poppystamps blog ..

birthday card I made for a sweet girl who loves dancing.. 


I have tried to make the "Floral Dancer" look like she is on a stage..






This is how I started my card.. on the left  you can see the frame I made with my die placed for cutting..right  after cutting in my die cutting machine.


This is the main card..I have cut and scored two concertina strips, these will be attached with glue to either side of this card.. right as shown.



Background for the dancer, using distress oxide ink and clear embossing so it looks light shiny lights.



Silver curtains made using "Stitched Hills" Pink embroidery thread for tie backs..  adhered to the card sides of the dancer cut and adhered in the middle section of the concertina..


Next I adhere the frame to the left and right concertina sides, finished with "Happy Birthday Melody"  "Angwin Corner with "Blooming Blossoms"  flowers.
Decorations Liquid Pearlescent and gems ..



Thank you for stopping by Pam x.
