I made this card using Dance Girl from InStyle Stamps for their InSpiration Challenge. This time I used the orange and yellow glow from the pumpkins and incorporated into the background of the dancing wall. This is the third card in a serieries where I’ll combine these images and embossing folder on a white background… so more to come! The other challenge was an Anything Goes with lots of Red.

Did you know? Slinky or “Lazy Spring” is a toy consisting of a helical spring that stretches and can bounce up and down and can perform a number of tricks. In 1943, Richard James, a naval mechanical engineer stationed at the William Cramp and Sons shipyards in Philadelphia, was developing springs that could support and stabilize sensitive instruments aboard ships in rough seas. James accidentally knocked one of the springs from a shelf, and watched as the spring “stepped” in a series of banana spilts, to a stack of books, to a tabletop, to the floor, where it re-coiled itself and stood upright.
