Good Morning lovely crafters!

We have a new challenge on the go at Passion for Markers, and our lovely Elaine has chosen your theme for the week:

Up for grabs are 3 digi images from our generous sponsor

I've decided to celebrate LOVE this week, with an Anniversary card.  I've used Unknown Dancers on my card, and coloured the image with Copics.  

First a brief story: I love to dance!  Too many years ago to mention, my husband agreed to take Latin American dance classes with me, and one of the dances we learnt to do was the tango.  I loved every second of it, until one day I chose to wear open shoes to the class, rather than closed toe shoes, and as my hubby stepped forward, the sole of his shoe slid across the top of my foot, and hooked my toenail, ripping my toe and ending our class with a fair bit of angry muttering.  Entirely my fault of course.

Other than the memory of that day though, the tango always bring s a smile to my face and holds a special place in our hearts, and this image has always reminded me of our tango days.

On that note, have you watched the movie Scent of a Woman?  Not only does it show Al Pacino at his absolute finest, but there's a tango scene in the movie that is positively beautiful.  My hubby and I used to put that movie on in the background while we practiced our tango at home 🥰

Time for my card!

My paper and the tag are from the Stamperia Passion paper pack.  I've distressed and inked the edges.  I've added Prima flowers and a few pearls.  I found a teeny pre-made bow in my stash, which I've added to the tag.  The hearts are Celebr8 laser cuts, which I've coloured with markers.

The girls have put together a beautiful set of inspiration cards this week, so be sure to pop over to have a look.  Thanks for popping in to see mine!
