Silver Fox Trot

Good Morning all!
Almost the weekend! Woo Hoo!
Time for a Just Inklined card!

I've made a 70th Birthday card for a lady who loves dancing!

The image I have used is Silver Fox Trot., from Just Inklined.
This image is also available on The Wrinklies CD Rom.
I coloured it up with a mix of flexmarkers & promarkers, cut out with a nestie
 & inked the edges with Antique Linen & Spun Sugar distress inks.

The button was made in my graphics programme. It was mounted on a piece of 
foam tape for some dimension. I love doing these little buttons!

I have no idea who the paper is by as it's unmarked 
& came from a goody box I purchased eons ago!
I added some of my precious favourite lace from my stash, then made three little panels 
which I fanned out to echo the line of her dress.  A double satin bow & a couple of 
stick pins were also added just to finish it off!

I decorated the inside of the card with some of the DP & a little
panel for a message to be written.
I was just looking at this image & thinking it would also be great for a
Christmas card or perhaps New Year if teamed with seasonal papers!
Thanks for popping in!
