Another one!

Another pop twirl card!!  A completely different theme and I was able to get my twirling element to be hidden inside the card!!
The music background is from Free Vintage Digistamps which I colour printed and glued to my card front.  The other two digital images I found at Pure Clipart and at Clipart Monster Club.  I added DANCE using embellished letters.  I created these typewriter letters years ago which I laser printed and punched out using my 1/2" punch.  I watercoloured them and added Dimensional Magic to finish them off nicely. Once dry I used glue dots to attach them to my card front.  Added my coloured image with 3D foam tape which overlaps my white seam binding that features a simulated bow.   To simulate a bow, simply tie a short piece of seam binding with a single knot to the long piece that has been attached to the inside of the card.  It can easily be adjusted by sliding along the ribbon.
On the inside I added a bit of sponging and stamping and some handwritten words - "like no one is watching".  I cut out the little ballerina and sewed her a skirt using blue and shimmery white tulle!! I love how she turned out.  You can see a close up photo of her below.  I had to be careful not to trim her too close so I would have enough room to add my trimmed glue dots which attach her to the bamboo stick.  She is also watercoloured. I added tied ribbons to the ends of the stick to keep it from slipping through. She twirls beautifully!!
I made my pop ups a little less wide to accommodate the height of my ballerina and  if I were to create another one of these I would stick with the 1" ones as they are more sturdy and make a my card taller to fit all the elements.
I would highly recommend trying out this fun card!!  I expect it will take a little more postage to send but I think totally worth it for the fun and movement it provides.  So many possibilities!!

So now to decide which one to send to my swap partner!!
