Unicorn Challenge #28 - Anything Goes

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

How are you? My husband goes back to work today. It has been a lovely Christmas break. Now it is all back to normal.

The start of the month is always busy in blogland and the start of a new year is no different. Being the first Tuesday of January the new challenge starts on the Unicorn Challenge Blog. The theme for this challenge is the ever popular Anything Goes.

I was asked by a friend of mine to make a card for a friend of their's who they met at dancing. She is 90 and she still goes dancing at least once a week if not more often. The card had to have a dancing theme.

I had just bought some non-shed glitter card from a Craft Show and I had been shown that the silver card could be effectively coloured with alcohol pens. That is what I did, all the glitter card was coloured Promarkers.  

This is a Signature die and it is called First Dance. So it would look good on a wedding card. By using more of them in coloured skirts it looks more like ball room dancing 

The Perspective Happy Birthday Circle die I thought done in glitter looked a bit like a glitter ball. 

The numbers and letters were cut with my Crafter's Companion alphabet and number dies. 

I was told that Dottie was thrilled with this card and it has even been put into a frame.  I am very pleased that she like it. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
