This group dance was choreographed by Mia Michaels, who I normally can't stand. But this dance was somewhat fascinating and I loved all the black and white patterns.
Here is the card I came up with:
Paper: White & Black
Stamps: Taggers Dozen, Print Pattern (soon to be retired) & Soft Swirls
Ink: White, Versamark, Black Embossing powder
Black, white, silver ribbon
Disco music has been a dear love of mine for many years now--and their gold and white costumes this week seriously made me freak out!
The BFF represents the angel wings on Will's back. :) Loved that little touch on his outfit!
Supplies. Stamps: Seriously Sassy, Aida cloth; Cardstock: Glossy White, Whisper White, Brushed Gold; Ink: Basic Black craft, VersaMark; Accessories: 2-way glue pen, gold glitz glitter, gold sequin, clear embossing powder.

Jaron gave this to me awhile back--can't remmeber the occasion--probably just a "thanks" card for being able to work w/someone so amazing! :) These are flowers from the Pretties Kit that are watercolored and then folded over. Isn't it amazing?!? If you think so you can go to his junk drawer and tell him so.

We decided to use So You Think You Can Dance as our inspiration this week because we were all so excited that it is back on!!! I chose Twitchington as my inspiration this week. I love both Twitch & Kherington and their broadway number was so much fun!! The dance starts around the 2:00 mark....
This card was so hard!! For some reason, it just wasn't turning out right and I had to try lots of different things. In the end, I was happy with it, only to have the picture not do it justice at all! I had to add a little bling (which there was polka dot bling on Twitch's tie) but then it doesn't even show in the picture (silver polka dots on the silver square of paper). Also I didn't intend for the feathers to look like a bird (sorry V). And yes, I did have to take my black boa apart---the things I sacrifice for my creativity! :)

I just love the new Fresh Cuts satmp set and coordinating notes!!! Of course i had to incorporate an Eiffel Tower into her card-since she is my Eiffel Tower loving kindred spirit!
And this is my color inspiration for the card--I got this from Real Simple and just loved the monochromaticness of it all--would never think of putting these colors together but love they way the look!!!
I used Purely Pom, Real Red & Regal Rose. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEANN!!!!! I hope tomorrow is a wonderful day!

So here's this weekend's template:
The movie was packed with amazing outfits, handbags, and accessories that I could hardly choose....this outfit was the winner b/c it was on some of the promos and everytime I saw it--I fell in love all over again! :)
So here's my card...
What do you think? Does it look like the outfit?
Supplies: Very Vanilla & Basic Black card stock & a gold envelope (flower); A Beautiful Thing & Background Sampler stamp sets; Regal Rose & Basic Black ink; Regal Rose 5/8" ribbon, Pretties Kit & black embossing powder.
Paper: Brilliant Blue (Miranda), Black (Charlotte), White (Carrie) & Rose Red Prints (Samantha) Samantha's dress seems really orange to me in this picture. It seemed more red in the movie. Rose Red was the best I could do. . .and I was out of Ruby Red!
Ink: Versamark with black embossing powder and glitter
Stamp: All About You
Embellishments: Lots of Glitter! And a white ribbon.
