Art Impressions Gobble Til You Wobble!

Hello AI Fans!
For my card today, I had a lot of fun with an AI Shake Your Booty called Gobble Set! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, so this set was a must have for me! My apologies, but this post is a little picture heavy. I actually cut the sentiment apart so I could use the "Gobble" portion of it on the front of the card. I love doing that, and if I want to use it together again, it's easily placed back together on my acrylic block!


A shot of the inside...

Got a little bit of the wobble action blur
And a shot of both the booty and the rest of the sentiment.

Thanks so much for visiting today and hope you have lots of time to get crafty!
