Ok, so I really wanted to spend the whole afternoon scrapbooking because I am so behind and looking at everyone else's blogs, I really need to get crafty. I sometimes have a hard time breaking out and really going with my creative flow - but today, I was prepared to JUST DO IT!
Then, I remembered that I had to make a card for my Grandmother's 90th birthday. So I put the layouts aside and started on the card. I am a SLOW card maker (and scrapbooker too!) I try things a hundred times and second guess myself, but usually am happy with the results.
This card was inspired by one I saw in a SU! Idea Book. All products are CTMH with the exception of the flowered patterend paper which is Chatterbox. The flower is from the Just Blooms Big Pinks - I love those things! I added extra bling by sticking a clear sparkle on top of the brad - after all, 90 years old deserves a little bling.
My parents are taking her to Mohegan Sun Casino tomorrow to throw money away, so I decided that instead of just sticking money in a card, I would make her a one of a kind "Mohegan Money" holder...now I bet she will be the fanciest one in the place.
Some more pizzazz! I was really happy with how the Dimensional Element came out. I inked it in Twilight ink and then covered it with glitter. All products are CTMH with exception of the patterned paper, this was a scrap so I have no clue where it is from.
