Happy Friday and a Few Challenges
I'm back today with another card and this time I managed to work in TWO challenges. I've seen some people work a dozen challenges into one card, but I'm not quite up to that speed just yet. :o)
This card is being submitted to the Penny Black Week 86 - Special Someone challenge. I made it for one of my oldest and dearest friends for her birthday. The other challenge is the Cute Card Thursday Challenge 98 - spots and dots. My spots and dots are on the background. I couldn't find any blue polka dotted paper in my stash (I know - I was shocked too) so I decided to make my own by punching circles (in this case spots and dots) out of scraps of blue background paper. I glued them down on white card stock, sponged the edges with turquoise ink, and then ran that whole piece through the Cuttlebug with the circles embossing folder. The stamp is Penny Black. I embossed it twice, colored with my ZIG markers and then cut out the little mice and popped them up on foam tape. I got the felt flowers from Kutz (you can find the link for her Etsy shop on my side bar) and I actually sewed on the buttons. I hardly ever sew so it's kind of a big deal for me. LOL.
I hope you all have a great weekend & God bless!
