Celebrate Your Special Day!

Tuesday, March 4, 2014

Happy Tuesday! I know that would usually be followed by something like, "Are you ready for another Timeless Tuesday," but Flourishes is giving everyone one extra day for this week's challenge and we're putting up the new Timeless Tuesday Challenge tomorrow. So, be sure to check back for that. ;)
I made this card for several challenges, two of which expired before I could get it posted, so I'm going to make this quick so I don't miss out on any more! ;)

I used the Viva la Verve February 2014 Week 4 sketch, turned sideways, of course--what IS it with me and sketches? My card for tomorrow's Timeless Tuesday challenge is made using a VLV sketch, also, and it's turned sideways, too! Maybe it's some kind of personality quirk where I don't want to conform to society's expectations or something. Who knows...but it is starting to worry me a little bit! ,~)

Anyway, back to the card...I did some dry embossing, stenciling with molding paste that I colored with reinkers, die cut some stars and edged them with a gold Krylon pen, then heat embossed the sentiment with gold glitter ep, stamped the blue edge, die cut it, and gave it a gold edge, too. I also dry embossed the front of the card base with a gun metal ef.

I think I like the inside of this card better than the front! I used a curvy border die for the red and blue layers and added another of the stars on top of them. On the sentiment panel, I sponged Pumice Stone ink inside the edge of the die. This card could be used for any number of celebrations, so, for now I'm leaving the inside sentiment-less.

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget about the new Timeless Tuesday Challenge that will be posted tomorrow! Enjoy your evening!

Oh wow this is too cool Cheryl, I love all the different textures going on, like that you colored the paste, let's it stand out so much better and your ribbon treatment on the sentiment tag is a neat touch with it all too!

Love your design. I think the outside looks as great as the inside. Great job. Thanks for sharing over at 613 Avenue Create. Monica, DT
