Although it's been a totally sucky day for NCAA Tournament basketball (my alma mater MSU AND rival U of M BOTH lost today), I managed to finish a card because I'm totally thrilled to have been invited to be a part of The East Wind Design Team. WOOHOO! I fell in love with Kyra's (AKA Unky's) stamps and you will too. We have a fab Challenge Blog, an active FB Group and fun challenges on both sites. Our current FB Group Challenge is Magical Creatures (which runs through April 17th) inspired my card today as well as several other challenges where I play regularly.
The fabulous image is Lucy Loo Arabian Nights, colored with Copics (yeah, yeah, I know, red hair, LOL) and fussy cut atop a gorgeous embossed panel sent to me by my dear friend Carole, because it is from a discontinued Marianne folder. I've been saving these embossings for a special project and THIS it IT! Thanks so much, Carole!
Here's the card closed. I spent the entire day yesterday figuring out this fold for the current Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers "F" is for (fortunately not for what came out of my mouth watching basketball all afternoon) Fancy Fold. Used my Spellbinders Gothic Arches to make it happen. Obviously, the sentiment was inspired by their challenge, as well. In case you can't read it, it says "To be perfectly honest, you really rub me the WRONG way". Although it's not required, I LOVE the opportunity to do SNARK. (Especially TODAY!) The blue scrolly stuff is cut with my Cuttlebug Moroccan something (don't even THINK of asking me to look that up) set. The color scheme of Blue, Purple, and Turquoise was inspired by the current challenge at 613 Avenue Create. Although they are an ATG Challenge Blog, they always have the most creative optional twists and this one was no exception. Always love playing there. So there ya go. Back to drowning my sorrows.
I'm also adding this to the Allsorts Use Those Dies Challenge.
