I whacked my little toe on the nightstand while making the bed yesterday morning! Must be why I have back and blue on my mind. It does make a pretty color combination for making cards.
This card follows the sketch and is my entry for the current Avery Elle AEI 'heart' U August Challenge.
The framed sentiment on this card is a free digi from Avery Elle which I printed and fussy cut. After masking the inside oval, I used a dauber to color the outer frame. To make the patterned background paper, I inked the inside of the embossing folder before inserting the paper and running it through my Cuttlebug. I hope you can see the strip of black self-adhesive glitter tape I added to the embossed black strip. It took me about 5 minutes to get the backing off that tape!
With the right inside sentiment, I'm thinking I'll use this as an Anniversary card. But I think it would make a nice birthday card, too.
I'm also submitting this to the following challenges:
ABC Challenge #41 - Lots of Layers
Make It Monday #154 - Always Anything Goes
Stamp and Create August Challenge - Glitter
Glitter and Sparkle Challenge #46 - Anything but Square
HobbyCutz Challenge #13 - Make your own background
Pile It On #33 - No Designer Paper
Robyn's Fetish #173 - Put a Frame around It
By the way, I added embossing and gems to yesterday's Mojo card. What do you think?
Off to Joyce's card workshop today. I'll post our cards tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!
