Having Fun Friend Card


I wanted to do something TOTALLY different and outside my comfort zone on this card. I CuttleBugged a transparency then added alchohol inks in Lettuce and Stream. I liked the bold circles and chose not to blend it too much. Then I added the "frame" of paper on top. Underneath is a "frame" of thin cardboard I used to make a shaker box out of this card. I cut a wavy slit in the front and added differnt kinds of beads inside. Lastly I made the little bookmark with the dolphin from the SU Silly Sealife set. The friends sentiment is a Studio G stamp. I painted in the waves and added glitter on the edges. The dolphin has stickles as well. The little rhinestones are from K&Co.

I was trying to do this for the SCS's sketch challenge #159. A little off the beaten path I guess. Oh, I did want to show you one more thing...the flowers my dh brought home to me last night. They're beautiful. He knows I don't really like roses because they die so fast so there are gerbera daisys and lillies in here and of course, my favorite color orange!
Have a great day.
