Gecko Galz Blue and Orange July challenge

Hi, I'm here, lol.  I finally finished this card for my girlfriend's 50th Birthday, the inside of this card says from your 110 lb friend.  I love this sentiment, I don't know who to attribute it to since I've seen it a ton of times and every time I see it I laugh.  The sweet Marilyn image is from Gecko Galz and so is that gorgeous paper (Nouveau Nights).  I am entering this into the July color challenge at Gecko Galz, blue and orange are the colors this month.  I added the message to the front of the image in Pic Monkey, really easy and free photo editing program.  I edit all my photos there but now I am getting a little more adventurous and adding some text, so easy to do!  I added lots of glitter to the edging.  I used my Perfect Layers Rulers to get the nice alignments.  I had originally cut the borders to my picture in blue, white, then blue againThe white did not look right so I traced my black Stickles around the border and hid the white frame.  The flowers were on the Nouveau Nights paper, I printed it twice and fussy cut the second layer and then added black Stickles to the center and orange Stickles to the flowers.  The flooring still has me floored, ha ha,  I can barely move in my craft room, there are boxes of wood "acclimating" all over the house.  Well, that's it, thank you for looking.  ~Diane

  12. Hee-Hee -- great sentiment for the front & perfect inside sentiment -- LOL!!! Gotta remember this one, but hey, I really did weigh 114 lbs when I met my husband @ age 28!!! NO ONE would believe it now that didn't know me then though! ;-( FABULOUS card, Diane, that anyone OVER 29 would LOVE to receive -- laughter IS the BEST medicine to counter 'old age' -- I should KNOW!!!
