For my box

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs.
It is very grey and wet here this morning after a wonderful sunny (but very cold) day yesterday!

On to my card for today.

I took this photograph, along with over 100 others, at Shipley Park, Derbyshire, way back in  July 2007.
I sat there for an hour or so completely enthralled with the grace and beauty of these young ladies despite the fact they were dancing barefoot with very muddy feet due to the heavy rains we had been having at the time!
They are Nusantra and if you ever get the chance to see them, you won't be disappointed.
Base card is my usual white linencard, folded and cut to 7x5.
I feathered the photograph in PSP7, and printed it onto the same white linencard, then cut with Spellbinders pierced oval die.
Wavy borders are the waste from my previous card (see below).
Foliage cut with Memory Box from a scrap of card.
White sticky flat backed pearls coloured with Copic pen :o)

It's a beautiful balance card! It's so soft and delicate. I've never heard of this group of dancers but will look them up. I think you might be one of the queens of a scrap box and using scraps. Hope you day is warm and sunny. Well, with the time difference...for tomorrow for you.
