Belly dancer

Hi
My friend who turned 80 last month has been an avid belly dancer for a few years.  She took it up when she became of retirement age. 
The dancer is popped up on pop dots and matted onto Whisper White cardstock and then placed on Dollar Store holographic cardstock.  This pic was taken under very cloudy skies and so the colors do show up but they change a lot as the card moves.  There are even some mauves in  it.
The sentiment goes above the dancer. 
I would have liked to have a wobbler behind the dancer but the wire I had didn't lend itself to a decent wobbler.  :(
Have a Blessed day.
Myrna

Three things....love love love the card. Second, I took up line dancing when I retired...belly dancing would had been a lot of fun. Third, I bought wobblers a year ago and haven't used them....thanks for the inspiration!

Wowzers .... belly dancing .... that's probably why she is 80 years old and still going strong! Great card. I'm sure it will be very special to her.

You have such a good sense of balance as far as using the holographic paper! The black and white are perfect against it, and the little bit of glitter is just the right amount of pop. She will certainly love it!
