Put On Your Dancin' Shoes Easel Card...

Good morning, fellow Crafters!  I can't believe it's time for another MayzyArt Challenge.  I am sure Mayzy had a hard time selecting the winners for the Silly Challenge so, I am excited to find out shortly.  Anyway, for our next Challenge, we want to see something "Fluffy" in your creations.  You may interpret it however you like.  Head on over to MayzyArt Challenge site to see the inspiration that your DT's have provided,  the rules that governed the Challenge and to link your projects.

Here's the Easel Card I made to hopefully inspire you.  I used MayzyArt's "Flamenco Dancer" and colored her with my ProMarker/Prismacolor markers, glittered the flower and shoes with Stickles (2 shades) and to add a fluffy touch to this card, I added some turquoise flocking on her fan.  I went with a 5.5-inch Kraft card base, gathered 2 DP's from Paper Studio and 1 DP from K & Company.  I die-cut a 4.5-inch scallop with my Cricut using Elegant Edges Cartridge, used an MS Circular cutter to cut the circle shape at 3.5-inch that will hold the DP triangles I have put together.  I die cut a Spellbinders label for my sentiment (computer generated) and got a couple sizes of brown satin ribbons to attach to the card and envelope.  I took one of my handmade Crochet flowers, placed a gold glass pearl in the center and adhered to the card.  If anyone wants to purchase my Crochet flowers, you can go to my Etsy Store (located at my sidebar) and select the colors you want out of the many I have available.  As you can see, they are wonderful embellishment for cards, pins, hair accessories and many more.  Okay, so to put the card together, I stitched all over for a polished look.  The sentiment in the message space of the card is from Fiskars and I added some Distress inking with Pumice Stone to a couple of panels for an aging effect.  I adhered several dewdrops in the card and envelope and walah (after several hours), this project is done...Let me know your thoughts. This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    Going Buggy featuring "August Challenge-Girlie"
2.    The Pink Elephant featuring "Create your own Embellishment" (Made my own Crochet flower)
3.    Beyond Grey featuring "Bingo" (I used Glitters, Flower and Die-cuts)
4.    Delightful Challenges featuring "Fancy and Frilly" 
5.    Craft Your Passion featuring "Power of Three" (3 dew drops in my envelope/3 on card front)
6.    Crafting for all Seasons featuring "Stitching" 
7.    Inspire Me Fridays featuring "Anything Goes" 
8.    Sassy Studio Designs featuring "What's on the Inside?"

Last several weeks had been pretty hectic for me and to make a card at times means sacrificing some much needed sleep.  But in spite all that, I always have that joy upon completing a project.  That's how I know I am definitely a Cardmaker/Crafty person at heart and I know lots of you can identify.  The Lord Jesus has been my inspiration and I know that when it comes time to be with Him, I will be able to use the skills I acquired here on earth to the task He has prepared for me in His Kingdom. As always, to Him be the glory!
