EBTKS Challenge 18, Mark's Finest Papers & OWH Stars & Stripes

 


I had fun creating this card. When I am relaxing before sleep (and sometimes in the middle of the night), I design cards in my mind. If what I come up with is good enough, I have a notebook by my bed to jot the sketch or idea down. I know- I am totally addicted:) But I know I am not the only one... This card came to me a few nights ago that way...

The challenge this week at Everything but the Kitchen Sink was to use aluminum foil in our cards; at Mark's Finest Papers we were to use diecuts (I used my circles); and Operation Write Home's Stars and Stripes blogs wanted birthday themed cards. I used a new embossing folder from Crafts Too with aluminum foil over a piece of cardstock to make the left part of the card. The hawk stamp is a new one from Memory Box.

Stamping smiles, Karen

I can so relate to creating in my mind as I am going to sleep and having to get up and write it down or I will lose it.

Very nice card thank you for sharing.
