This card makes me want to boogie....
I love to dance. When people ask why, I always think of this quote:
It lifts your spirit, touches your soul.
As long as you can stand, you'll dance.
It's a discipline of love, this ritual.
A constant reawakening of the mind and body.
Each time you reach for abandon and find,
Right there with it,
A sense of salvation..
A feeling of grace."
I found it very poetic and expressive, hidden in the most unlikeliest of places: a concert book for Janet Jackson. But maybe it is in the perfect place afterall. For JJ is truly one of my favorite dancers. I used to say that one of my lifelong dreams was to be her back-up dancer :).
I just ADORE that Flapper Anya is dancing! Not only is her pose perfect, I knew I had to have her also because of the era she represents! I've always wanted to dress up as a flapper girl and have that short, wavy, close-to your-scalp type of hair. I am trying to persuade my mom into having a 1920s themed retirement party next year. That would be so much fun! And of course, there'd be dancing :).
This card is for ICSketches # 43. Such a lovely sketch. Thought the flower pin added a cool, vintage touch. The 'sentiment' is a Making Memories brad (remember those?). I used Kate's coloring as an inspiration. I also had an awesome time using a lot of kol laj products. The DP is really a paper towel that was painted on. And those colorful squares? I once made my own to make this a couple of years ago (Now if only I could remember the product so I can make more!):
Have a good weekend everyone! I am, unfortunately, working all weekend. Anyone watched New Moon? I LOVED it! Even more so than Twilight. But I'll leave that for another post :).
