Retro - gotta love those leg warmers

I totally forgot to post this last week so as I didn't make anything this weekend I thought I would show it now.

I loved this MFT stamp immediately but thought I would have to wait a while before I used it then I remembered this birthday and she was perfect for it. Sorry about the awful picture but she was already in the post by the time I realised how bad the lighting was.

I used paper and card from the snippet box and thought the silver circles looked a bit like disco balls. The leg warmers were plain so I used my memento pen and drew in a couple of lines to make them stripy just like mine were back in the day.


Ingredients:
Image: "80's Girl" MFT
Sentiment: Same as image
Paper: "Dance with Me" Summer Driggs
Cardstock: Snippet folder
Candy: "Glitter Dots" Papermania

Challenges: Snippet Playground

So cool and really does have a retro feel. The circles are very like the geometric sparkly ball that used to hang in the place where we danced as kids. Great idea on the copics to make your leg warmers (I kinda missed THAT particular fad!). Really cute card. TFS
