This week over at Through the Purple Haze Challenges, the theme is Anything Goes with a twist of Halloween. We are having a head to head Team A vs Team B, so please pop over and vote for your favourite DT project :) The sponsor this week is Digital Delights, offering a $5 coupon and Eye Owl Candy, offering a workshop! Wow :)
This week I went with the Anything Goes. I have no Halloween crafting stuff, and considering we don't celebrate Halloween in a paper/crafting way decided to make an Anything Goes project!! Here it is:
My husband's birthday is a fortnight after mine (yes we have about 8 family birthdays in the space of 6 weeks!!! Crazy time! ;) ) and this is the card I made for him. He's into music and plays the guitar, can you see that hint in the card?!
With the blue embossed board I die cut a circle out, and then die cut the largest Sizzix Framelits label out of Joanna Sheen marbled paper. I cut a smaller circle from the label, and on the inside sheet stamped '100% Happy" in brown ink. Before sticking down the label, I layered some brown paper with some music notation paper and washi tape each side of the circle aperture.
I stamped some guitars in gold ink above and below the brown board, and stamped the remainder of the sentiment 'birthday' onto some brown card. With some bakers twine, I looped it around the front of the card (I made a little eyelet hole on the fold of the card) and threaded the sentiment through.
I quilled a few blue strips to make a flower design, and used a lovely brown flower embellishment for the middle. I stuck a few buttons and gems on to finish it off.
Hope you enjoyed looking at my card. Why not give the challenge a go?
Hope you have a wonderful Monday :)
I hope to enter this card into a few challenges.
