The Anniversary Waltz

Yesterday was Mum's birthday and the boys made her cards.

Josh's clean and simple design;

Jared's portrait design (luckily I think I have another skein of thread on that colour!)

and my card, based on Kazan's fabulous sketch #63 over at 2sketches4you;

I used;
Crate Paper Girl Paperie & vintage sheet music papers
Prima Marketing letters and pearls
Ribbon Girl ribbon and twine
EK Success butterfly punch
Paper flowers
Hand stitching and inking.

and this week's Daring Cardmaker's dare is a team dare celebrating our 4th Anniversary;

As you know, October is our Anniversary month - we're 4 years old in a couple of dares time so it's definitely time to celebrate. So our theme for this week's challenge is:

Welcome to the Dance
We'd like you to take Dance and Dancing as your inspiration and do some fancy footwork on your cards this week. We can't wait to see how you shimmy along with this one. Be it Ballet, Street-dance, Flamenco or Tango, the (dance) floor is yours

I used the title of the dare and made this;

and I used

Digital sheet music purchased online
Bazzill cardstock
Vintage papers
Tim Holtz birdcage and on the edge sizzix dies
Echo Park stickers
Ribbon Girl ribbon
Pebbles Inc. rub on
Kaiserkraft letter stickers

TFL - Don't to check out the gorgeous anniversary and dance inspired cards that the other DT members have made here.
