Oh, my heck! Would you just look at Who's That Couple? OK, so that's not the official name ;-) The official name is May I Have This Dance? and this is the set we're showing you today. Can you just not think of tons of reasons to use this? Anniversary, Valentine's, New Year's...ANY time!!

I had so much fun making this card. I wanted to incorporate the new Skyline Border Die-namics die (GASP, right?!) and I love the way it extends out of each side of the image panel. I wanted to give the impression that they were dancing on some rooftop at night and I think it worked. I have lots of layers of paper piecing on this image to create the dimension that I was after, but it was so worth the effort. The sentiment was stamped on one of the new Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics die cuts--love the familiar shapes in a smaller size.

And on the inside is another sentiment stamped on a soon-to-be-released Oval Open Scallop Doily Die-namics die cut.







OK, so that's it for me this time. Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back later with this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge!
