Put on Your Dancin' Shoes and Celebrate!

This card is for my DH's birthday.

The "It's Your Birthday" and "Celebrate!" are hand lettered with a black gel pen, The rest of the sentiment "Put on your dancin' shoes." and the image of a couple dancing are from My Favorite Things "May I Have This Dance" stamp set.

The image is colored with Copic markers after stamping with Versafine Onyx Black Ink on Copic X-Press It white cardstock and clear heat embossing.  It is then cut out ond matted on black & red cardstock.  This is then popped up with Scotch dimensional foam tape on tan cardstock.  The edges of the tan cardstock are distressed with Frayed Burlap and Scattered Straw Tim Holtz Distress ink.  Black and red cardstock are matted behind the tan.  Black and clear glitter gel pens are used on the man's suit buttons and the red in the letters for a bit of bling.  Unfortunately the sparkle doesn't show up well in the picture. 

The inside says "I love dancing through life with you.  Happy Birthday"

Thanks for stopping by.
