Just Dance!

So this is one of those cards that just make me feel all kinds of feelings.  Strange thing about crafting sometimes.  Sometimes you have no idea where the art comes from and other times you do.  The whole time I was making this card I was singing this song in my head and thinking about so many things in my life that I would have changed if I had known how they would have turned out--then remembering that if you change one thing--it changes others too.  So in the end we have to just be happy with what we have and were we are!  Have you heard this song before?  

The Dance by Garth Brooks
Here is the video if you so wish to listen.

Looking back on the memory of 
The dance we shared beneath the stars above 
For a moment all the world was right 
How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye 
And now I'm glad I didn't know 
The way it all would end the way it all would go 
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain 
But I'd have to miss the dance 
Holding you I held everything 
For a moment wasn't I the king 
But if I'd only known how the king would fall 
Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all 
And now I'm glad I didn't know 
The way it all would end the way it all would go 
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain 
But I'd of had to miss the dance 
Yes my life is better left to chance 
I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance

This card was again inspired by the Stampin Up! catalog.  Page 138.  They used this layout with the tree from Lovely as a Tree, all I did was change the stamp and colors.  I love the way this happy dancing girl pops with the black background.  

I will again be linking up to the SUO challenge.  Case the catalog, here is the sample from the catalog. 

So happy you stopped by today--and I hope you find a chance to JUST DANCE!
