dance @ CD Sunday

The challenge on CD Sunday this week is "Dance". I've used MCS The Finishing Touch cdrom as I had remembered seeing these dancers on there when I made my kimono card the other week. It's great having cdroms but I do tend not to remember what is on them apart from the obvious ones!
I decided to do something different and design the whole card in MCS and print straight onto the card as I have had some rather nice smooth 300g from The Papermill delivered.
I took one of the embellishments which was a red rose and tiled it to make the background. I also shrunk one down to tiny proportions and put it in the dancer's hair. I used a background paper and recoloured it to match and put a vignette around it, adding another rose and using the font Magento for the greeting. Finally I added two rows of lace flowers.

How fortunate you spied this image the other week. It's perfect for this week's challenge. Love the extra little touches like the rose in the dancer's hair.

It's amazing what we find while looking through our CDs. This is just right for our challenge. The dancers have a sultry look about them.
