Just Dance


Recently I watched a precious video of my 5-yr old DGD dancing around the tables in a cafe when a Taylor Swift song came on the speaker system. She was in her own little world as she twirled and danced around and around, pretending she was Taylor and acting out the video in her own adorable way. As soon as I watched it, this Unity image came to mind, so I pulled out the stamp, made a card, and I'll be sending this to my DGD.
The card base is Pacific Point, and the mat was a white one that I colored with my orange Fluorescent Copic to coordinate with the image, which was colored mostly with fluorescent Copics. I had to make her shoes pink, since my DGD was wearing shiny pink boots in the video. The panels were all die cut with Lil Inker stitched rectangles. Her tutu was lightly colored with pale pink Copics and covered with some frosted lace stickles for a little sparkle.

I'm sharing this over at the Unity Friday FWF challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Friday!
