Dancing with Shadows

It's been a very hot week here in Cyprus. The whole place is buzzing with tourists which is fantastic for economy. We had a lovely day out at Pissouri yesterday. It was quieter than Paphos but still busy for a small coastal village. We watched some guy kite surfing. Boy do they have to be strong. I thought he'd be blown away one point, as there were some strong winds down at the coast. He was certainly 'dancing' above the waves from time to time!!!

Ok back to this week's challenge at CD Sunday and my last week as Guest Designer....soooo sad!!
The challenge 'Dance' was chosen by Carol.
I decided on the Joanne Sheen CD 'Dancing with Shadows'. Some fab black and white images on this CD the image I chose however does have a hint of orange. I went for a stepper card this time. They always look effective and so easy to make. I used orange card to pick up the orange in the image.
I added  black sequin strips and flowers. Black ribbbon and bows on the bottom step with a sentiment from my stash 'Happy Days'. The card will be perfect for a friend who many years ago loved to dance. Now.....well let's just say.....'old age is a bummer!!'....I'll let you guess. That's right no longer able to dance but boy when we were able to we certainly had  'happy days' dancing!!
Thank you Carol, for choosing the theme and allowing be to go down memory lane. Thank you to CD Sunday for allowing me to have a fab time with you all this month as Guest Designer.
Fingers crossed someone views my blog this week as I got no takers last week :( I know we're all sooooooooo busy. Catch you sometime and don't forget to visit the fab creations by the rest of the team at CD Sunday
