Argentine Tango Dancers

Hiya folks!

Almost didn't get here to post this card today, but at last I have it finished and here I am! Yeay!!

I made this following the sketch at Sunday Sketch and Stamp. I didn't use the squares in the sketch, as I wanted flowers to go with the theme.

I have used one of my new images for this card - Argentine Tango Dancers which is available for purchase in my blog shop:

The backing is a printed paper that I got from Funky Fairies ages ago. Sorry, but they aren't around any more so I can't give you a link for them! I printed it a lovely deep red, with edges blackened by ink daubed round it. The central strip is a damask border printed over a purple version of the same paper.

I made the flowers with scraps from my 'bits box' by using punches, ink and metallic rub ons. They only just fit on the card!! Oops, could do with some smaller punches me thinks!!. I also put some rub on over the silhouette too, just for a bit of bling. These flowers fit the theme at Crafty Creations this week, which is to 'make your own flowers'.

Now to go and get something for the family to eat - teatime approaches, and I have an allotment AGM to prep for tonight - Ugh!!!
