It's Friday again, and you know what that means. That's right....it's time for another Blogger's Challenge.
This week's challenge was to make a birthday card. That's it!! No other rules!!! Any sketch...any colors.....yeah!!!
Once again I reached for my brand new "Flight of the Butterfly" stamp set. I used a brand new color combination on this creation: Baja Breeze, Sage Shadow and Close to Cocoa. I hardly ever use Sage Shadow...so that's quite an accomplishment for me!!!
The focal image is SUPER-DEE-DUPER sparkly!!! After stamping it, I ran it through my Xyron machine and dipped it into my Dazzling Diamonds. The photo doesn't even do the sparkliness justice....in fact this photo is really bad!!! I couldn't get it to photograph right!!!
The focal image is double-matted.....first on Sage Shadow and then on Close to Cocoa.
The base card is Baja Breeze. The only thing I did to it was sponge the edges with Baja Breeze ink. I added a strip of Whisper White cardstock that was lightly stamped with my Canvas background stamp and Close to Cocoa ink. For this really spotty look, just dance your fingers over the cardstock. I sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa ink too.
The final touch was adding some Chocolate Chip narrow grosgrain ribbon.
