"Dance" Card: Sakura DT Post with Candy!

I'm really excited about being on this Design Team and this is my very first post for them!
My generous box of goodies included many colors of the 3D Crystal Lacquer, including pearlescent colors which I used to make this groovy background paper for my "Dance" card.

Colored Pearl Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer: blue, fushia, copper & gold
textured wall paper
black cardstock
transparency film
black mini brads
Bling Flourish (Prima)
Straight edge tool, piercing tool
Computer: word document, printer
Font: Anke Calligraphic FP

Cut the textured wall paper slightly smaller than your card front.
Drizzle blobs of the colored 3D Crystal Lacquer onto the wall paper and use the straight edge tool to spread it over the entire surface. The color will deposit into the lower areas and the high areas remain virtually clear. Let dry.

Create a word.doc file with graphic, lines, and font then print onto transparency film. When you have such a pretty background, why cover it up?
My document was 4x6", I cut the transparency film to size first, then printed.
You can use the image below for personal use.

Attach the transparency film over the groovy background using a small amount of glue behind the graphics, secure with a black mini brad in each corner.

Add bling flourishes as shown.

I love to make my own background papers and effects with mediums, SO MUCH MESSY FUN!
