Today I could finally make the card I had in my had for days... I couldn't wait to use that cute tango stamp from the Paper Shelter.

Unfortunately my camera is not working anymore, so I had to use my OLD digi-cam, which really is old... The photo of my card is okay, but not as good as with my beloved camera.

Stamp: "Tango" from The Paper Shelter
Ink pad inwhite
Colours: Polychromos from Faber Castell
Sketch: Hanna and Friends (old challenge)
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities,Magnolia Doohickeys (swirls & leaves), Creatables (flowers)
Punch: Victorian border punch
Papers: blue wrapping paper
Ribbon, glitter, gems, pearls, plain papers and cardstock from my stash.

Favourite song:
My favourite song from PUR, a German band is called "Wenn sie diesen Tango hört" (When she hears this tango). It's about an old lady, that had been a young mother/wife during WW II and is now old and alone as her husband died already and the children moved away. And when she hears this tango, she dances for herself as she loved to dance with her husband... but he's not here to enjoy her retirement with her.

I am entering the card in the following challenges:

cutie pie challenge 20 - favourite song
