Shall We Dance

Bloggers Challenge this week is Make It Shimmer, and make it shimmer I did (at least in real life). I started by stamping this Stampsmith image of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers on glossy paper. Then I painted the image with Creative Inspirations Paints for more shimmer. The frame is cut using a Heartfelt Creations/Spellbinders die and covered with Rock Candy Stickles for even more shimmer. The background is a piece of DCWV glittery paper. I added a little bling to the frame, a center pearl surrounded by two rhinestones.
This card also meets the challenges at the Stampsmith Challenge which is The Starring Role and at Ink on my Fingers Sunday Challenge which is pearls and diamonds.
