Friday Mashup & VLV
Scroll on down to the 3rd post today to find my Raise the Bar challenge card! The Bar-tenders are back from a summer hiatus...check it out and play along!
I discovered a new Friday challenge through a stamping friend, and decided to play along this week. It's called Friday Mashup and you have the option to create an anniversary card or a card using glitter or you can "mash it up" and use both! My only glitter is in the brad, and the sentiment is a tiny heart tag (LOVE those mini PTI tag dies!) with simply "love you" stamped on it. I felt this card would be quite appropriate for an anniversary card, but could also be given to anyone you might want to convey this thought to. I stamped the BG in Stazon Cotton White...again using this scrollwork stamp I had out from an earlier project. The sketch by Andrea Ewen is for the Viva la Verve Week #2 challenge on the Verve forum. Loved the simple layout...needed something simple for a busy time of year!
What else did I use?
