Irish Dancer

I have some exciting news today.  I have been selected to be a part of The Crafting Café Challenge Design Team.  And this is my first post.  The challenge this week is Add Fiber/Lace to your project - OPTIONAL TWIST - Use the Faux Silk Technique.  So, this is my first card using the Faux Silk Technique.  We have two sponsors, Beansie Doodles

and Kenny K Downloads.

I have used an image from Beansie Doodles called Irish Dancer.  I thought she would be appropriate with St. Patrick's Day quickly approaching.  Isn't she just too cute?
