My Mum in Law asked me to make a 60th card for a friend's Husband:
I think I like it! I went with four challenges, Cupcake Crafts set the colour combo -'red, white and blue', Our Creative Corner have the theme - 'stars and stripes', ABC challenge say- 'D is for die cuts' and finally this is my interpretation of the rather fab sketch over at Inspirational Card Sketches.
I changed the squares on the sketches to stars, hope that's OK? The 60 is printed from a Pink Petticoat monogram set, coloured flat with Copics and coated in Glamour Dust, I prefer to say it spangles rather than sparkles as it's a card for a chap!
The star mounts are Nestabilities and the little metal star is a WR Memory Keepers Grommet. It was pink and blue, but changed to red with the help of a ProMarker. It's the first time I've used a grommet (they came with the Big Bite) and I had to google the instructions on how to set one. It's a good job I did too. Added lots of 3-D foam to give this one some extra dimension.
And another reason to smile today, I won last weeks challenge over at Creative Inspirations! I've got a fabulous goodie bag of ribbons coming my way. Thanks so much Rach.
Might be back with more later, going to meet my crafting buddy Sue later on for lunch, got to smuggle her out of the office first though!
