Card no. 52 - Dance like no one is watching ...

Hello ladies, this little number took me a whole week to make, yet again. I think my little Hannah needs a schedule ;)
I just looove this gorgeous Whiff of Joy image! My husband says it reminds him of me when we've met. I think, I might have similar dress.
Anyhow this card will go to someone special, not sure who yet.

The papers are from DCWV called Linen Closet. The base paper is also DCWV paper, but from the Mediterranean Collection. I made the musical notepaper by using my newest stamp from wonderful local store: Impressive Ideas. I distressed the paper using Ranger's Tea Dye and "fluffed" the edges with my scissors. Also, I think I used the Tea Dye on every piece of designer paper attached to give it a little dimension. I cut out some letters that l downloaded from dafont.com - fantastic font resource. I cut out the letters on my Cricut using SCAL. I also sewed the edges - one of the newest techniques I've been using and totally lovin' it :) Flower is by Prima and extra leafs are punched out with Martha Stewart - Branch Punch. I printed the sentiment on my printer :) Easy peasy ... Oh, yeah! This card has A LOT of bling - Stickles (Turquoise). Of course, I colored the image using my ProMarkers and ShinHan Markers. I forgot to mention that I stamped and cut out Willow's dress out of DP (as I am sure you can tell).

The Front View

The Detail

I couldn't take a good picture of the inside, so sorry for the poor quality. I think the darkness of the paper and the darkness of my home (from cloudy skies) caused this - and not my awful photo skills :)

The Inside View
I hope you enjoyed this. This card for some reason makes me smile - it's just so happy :)
Have a happy Friday everyone!!!
