I made this card for my dear friend Meg who will be turning 39 again. I used my favorite digital paper from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Uptown Houndstooth, I will never tire of this classic design. The classic image is a freebie I found a long time ago from Art Freebies. I used the sketch from Card Positioning Systems as my inspiration, I hope it's OK I added the sentiment.
I'm not sure if you can see it, I have a border of black diamond Stickles running outside the houndstooth paper. I never would have bought black Stickles alone, it was part of an 8 piece set I bought before Christmas. But now that I have it I love it. I always do this, I photograph my card and then I see something is missing, of course it only shows up in the photo, never while it's on my desk, never before it's all glued down. I realised I needed another layer, like I should have mounted a sheet of black cardstock underneath. It's all glued down but I can add a line of black Stickles! Many a card has been rescued from mediocrity with my black (magic
) diamond Stickles.
Stop by Lindsay's blog The Frugal Crafter on Friday for a wrap up of this and all the design team's work.
