CTS60 - Happy Birthday to my DMIL!
I know. Two posts in one day! I actually made this card this afternoon to post on Thursday, but then realized that the current CAS(E) This Sketch challenge will be over by then. And tomorrow is CASology and Wednesday is the new Card Concept challenge, so today was the only day for me to post and link up!
This is going to be my mother-in-law's birthday card. This is her favourite colour combination. I quickly arrived at the overlapping Neat&Tangled Happy Birthday stamps, but struggled with how to incorporate the 'ribbon' behind the sentiment/image panel. In the end I embossed a strip of dots with iridescent ep for some more sparkle. But that left me with another dilemma. It's so hard to photograph clear glitter (especially when it's an integral part of the sketch). So that's why this photo is so dark - any lightening I tried made the glitter dots disappear!
