Today sees the start of the first challenge for 2017 over at Sparkles Monthly . Babs has choosen the theme of
Here's my card, the first card in ages without any stamping on it. I raided the scraps box for a bright assortment of colours and a piece of black stripey paper - possibly antique Doodlebug?? I put the cuttlebug into overdrive with nesties octagon dies. The black card surrounding the letters is recycled from some packaging and is actually quite shiny but not showing up too well in the photo ;-(
The silver die cut letters were cut using a Tim Holtz Vintage Market Alphabet die. Have to admit, I thought this card was going to be quick to make but after all the die cutting and tricky lining up to assemble I think it would have been quicker to colour up a large stamp!!
Thanks for visiting today and for any comments you leave. I hope you can join us over at Sparkles this month!
