I know one girl, she's been dancing since her childhood and now she's an A-class professional (ballroom dancing). She had a birthday last week, and I wanted to give her a card - there was no question about the central piece. =)
The background is a piece of ivory watercolor paper, cut with paper edgers. The swirls on top and at the bottom are dry embossed. In the center of the card there's a color pencil powder circle and a quilled design of a dancing couple.
I also made an envelope for this card - with a smaller drawing of the same design among swirls:
And the inside. I finally bought a stylus to try calligraphy. It's my very first try, yet it looks better than pen or pencil writing.
I know that it's faaaar from perfect and there's yet a lot to learn, but I like it and I will try my best to improve my skills =)
