I had so much fun in Blogland yesterday visiting you all, I had lots of inspiration to make two cards. First up is my card for the current sketch over at the Retrosketches Blog. The moment I saw this sketch I knew I had to take part!!! Lots of lovely layers just as I like it!!!
So here's my card:
and the sketch:
For my card I used some pieces of scrap paper from Teresa Collins and SimpleStories, lying all over my desk. The star (by Kaisercraft) I have heat-embossed with white EP on black cs, fussy cut and mounted it on foam tape onto my card. At first I wanted to add a big white flower (as always!!) instead of the star, but in the end I settled for the star. Looking at the photo's now, I think I should maybe have gone for the flower!!! Too late now!! What do you think - the star OK or should it have been a flower??? Can't really make up my mind!!!
Added silver rhinestones and 3 green brads that I discovered hidden away in a box with brads dating from the time I used to add brads to all my cards!!! Snipped off the ends and glued them down - and they are the perfect colour match for the small piece of green dp on the card!!. Finally added 2 washi tape strips and it was done!!!
O yes, almost forgot: Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.
Will be back later with my Mojo Monday card.
Thanks for popping in. I always appreciate your visits and comments!!!
Have a lovely day!!
