Corrosive Challenges: Just Dance!

Hello!  Time for a new Corrosive Challenge!  This Challenge is called Just Dance!  So dig out your dance-themed images or papers, etc and join us!  We are thrilled to be sponsored by Mayzy Art! She has some of the cutest and most fun images going!  Swing by and see them yourself!

For my card I used Flamenco Dancer.  When I was little, I went to elementary school in San Antonio, Texas for three years, and one of the things I can recall from all those years back is having Flamenco dancers come to our school/class and dance.  I was mesmerized by the beautiful and graceful dancers- the one I remember had a gorgeous red dress, shiny black hair in a bun, and the fan and castanets.  I remember imitating her in my room at home and trying to snap my fingers like those castanets!  Needless to say, I am sure it was pretty comical, but I still love to see Flamenco dancers- which is rare these days especially since I live in Winnipeg!

I used some new SEI paper that I had to snag at the LSS the other day, some older orange glitter paper, and misc card stock.  The sentiment I did on the computer, and used MS punch for that and layered it with a fiskars punched circle.  I colored her with copics and some spica glitter pens.  I added some bling, but kept it simple to focus on the image and paper.

Thanks for stopping by!
