Just For You


So, whaddya think? I whipped this card out this morning for 4 challenges:
Pile It On: Black, White, and one other color (pink)
Cuttlebug Spot: Confetti Creations
365 Cards Day 198: Make a Mosaic
Card Patterns Sketch 32: Sketch to the right

Make sure you check out all of the challenge sites noted above - they have some really great sponsors and prizes this week!

I am loving this card! First of all Pink, Black and White are some of my favorites for cards. But I used a technique that I had never used before. If you look at the picture below, I cut multiple 1"x1" squares of the 3 cardstocks, then I layered and adhered them onto a base sheet, mostly just for stability. Then I embossed that using the Cuttlebug Swirls folder, and trimmed the edges. Voila! Mosaic, embossed confetti background!

The stamped image is from Papertrey Ink Sign Language set. I added some pink gems at the top of the image for some bling!

I used a Martha Stewart edge punch on a black strip of cardstock at the top and some pink ribbon secured with a button and some pink and white paper flowers.

Thanks for Looking!
