Dance like no-one is watching Flowers card

I like rubber stamps with sentiments that are a bit out of the ordinary, something different to 'happy birthday' and 'best wishes'.  They can sometimes be hard to find and what's more, if they are that unusual you might find you are only able to use them a couple of times for projects. So I was pleased when I got a sheet of sentiment stamps with slightly more unusual but still usable phrases, like this one: 'dance like no-one is watching'.

You could make quite an amusing card with that, a bit tongue in cheek, but I decided to go down the more motivational, inspirational route with this card.

I had a pack of papers with different floral designs and I liked the swirl of branches in this one as to me it suggested the smooth movement of a dancer. I took another sheet of the same paper and cut out some of the flowers, and layered them with adhesive pads over the flowers on the first sheet. I simply stamped the sentiment at the top and let it speak for itself.

Finally I trimmed the bottom edge of the card into a scallop shape - this is a stand-up card that opens vertically rather than the normal way around, just to be a bit different!

I'm sending this to Ooh La La Creations as the theme for this week's challenge is flowers. The theme is also flowers at Simply Create Too.
