Cardabilities Sketch Challenge #19

Since I have not picked up a needle and thread since my son was born over a year ago, I have decided to change my former cross-stitching blog to a papercrafting and general crafting blog. I hope you enjoy my new ideas and what I have to share :)

My mom purchased a Cricut Expression in October to make decorations for my son's first birthday party. Ever since then, I have been hooked! I have most recently been experimenting with card-making. I decided to participate in Cardabilities Sketch #19 Challenge. My fiance's 40th birthday is coming up on the 14th and I needed a card for him. Sorry for the glare in the pictures. It was the best I could do at almost 1am. I hope to build a light box soon.

The card is 5x7. I designed it on my Gypsy. I used:

Plantin Schoolbook - Scallop (I reshaped one of the oval monograms and hid the letter.)

Smiley Cards - Guitar, speech bubble, and ROCK ON

A Child's Year - Font (I cut the sentiment out of vinyl.)

Gypsy Wanderings and George - Stars

Swiss Dots folder for the gold strip.

The metallic papers are from my mom's stash.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you'll come back again soon! :)

VERY cute card. I think I'm most surprised by the striped paper and it really works. Love it...

I just put up my card for the MoJo challenge. Why don't you do one too. My next card, I think I'll use my cricut. I'll let you know when I have that one up and maybe you can do one as well. Hope to see some cards...
