Dancing for 25 Years!

This week is a very special week in our family. My husband's sister is celebrating 25 years of marriage. Now, one might expect a more serious and romantic card, but when I saw this cute "couple" dancing, I knew this was for them! They always have such a fun-loving spirit.

For those familiar with this image, Dance Fever Digi by The Greeting Farm, you may realize that the male mouse doesn't actually have glasses. It was difficult to tell from the image though. The detail lines were just in the right place to put a pair on him, and that just happens to be the perfect look for my sister-in-law's husband.

While I've had the image colored for quite some time, I struggled for a while over the layout. Finally, I ended up chalking in a pastel flourish in the upper right corner to make a circular pattern from the image to the 25. It's just barely visible in the photo, but is a bit brighter on the actual card.

I also used Spellbinders' scalloped rectangles die cut, Heidi Swapp gold Color Shine mist, and a couple of Thickers numbers with silver Stickles on top.

Thanks for visiting, and keep on dancin'!  Please drop by again.

  1. Wonderful card, Karen! I'm sure they will love it. Personal touches like the glasses and the dancing theme make it extra special and a real keepsake.
