Flamenco Dancer Card


Hope your Saturday is productive.  I plan on relaxing and trying to stay off my knee so it can heal.  However, I will work on a few cards and maybe sneak in some cooking.  Yep, for those of you who know me...I did say "cooking."  I have been a cooking crazy person since I joined Pinterest.  I am just so inspired to make stuff.  I made a yummy Oreo cookie-Peanut Butter-Reese's Cup dessert on Wednesday for an office party and Thursday I made Sweet and Sour Chicken with fried rice.  Oh my, I am so glad that I have lots of people to share it with. lol  My older sister, Dora, who is a phenomenal cook, baker, and candy maker (lol) is so floored that I am cooking.  She has been trying to get me to do it for years and I didn't see the need when I had her. lol  However, now I enjoy the challenge of creating dishes from recipes and adding my own little something-something to them.   Okay, enough about cooking...

Today, I am sharing with you one of my Etsy inspired cards.  I saw these cute little Bridal clutches on and thought they would make cute cards. 

However, once I made  my card, it reminded me of a Flamenco Dancer's dress.

I don't know why this reminded me of a Flamenco Dancer...maybe the colors and the lace. I truly loved the way the clutch looked and wanted to duplicate it.  Unfortunately, I am not good with making paper flowers so I kind of improvised with this one.  I will give this card another try, because again I love the look and also over on Birds blog she has free rolled flower SVGs which I will use for the next card I create.

I will be entering this card in the DYSU "Anything Goes" challenge.

Cardstock:  Marco
Embellishments:  Lace from stash, brad from Michaels

Now get to creating...

Remember:  There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
