Firstly, I am happy to have completed one of Kaye's card sketch challenges over at Craftmad this year. Only 11 to go. :-) I had fun creating this messy card.
When I make cards I really like to make them for someone so that my card can take a little more direction. I also wanted to send more snail mail to my son while he is at Uni than I did last year. Who doesn't like receiving something in the mail? So thought if I would just make a heap of cards and send them to him. Another thing I want to continue doing this year is using up my stash.
So this card started with the Craftmad January Sketch (here). Next I found the stripey paper which has come from a magazine at some stage. It has a distressed look about it so I distressed all the edges of the covering card stock layers. Then added some orange handmade paper, Bazzill Bling card stock and a strip of the blue from the background paper. I sprayed the card with SU Silver Foil Spritz. I have had these little round stickers in my collection for ages and thought this would be a good chance to use them. They say:
'Moment to Shine'
'You be You'
'Dreams come True'
Thanks for visiting, have a wonderful day.
