I've had a lucky week as far as card making goes. First, a Top Five at Get Sketchy last week and then I won the challenge over at SPCC! I knew I stayed up all night for a reason! haha I wish my all nighter had been that enjoyable. As it turned out, my laptop died and I was desparately trying to revive it. So I'm still sharing our old desktop that is driving me crazy. I must apologize for the picture links on my last few posts not working. It is a glitch in the computer and Firefox and Explorer don't work well on it. And then, Blogger doesn't operate well in Opera! I just hate it when things don't work like they should. Hopefully, if I can get my laptop restored this weekend, I'll have my 'computing' groove back.
Now, on to my card. This card is for this week's Get Sketchy Challenge #25 and the Color Chef Challenge #39. I loved the color combo of cream, kraft and black. It makes anything look so elegant! I must confess I had a little trouble with this card. I really thought it was going to be quick and snappy, but it turned out to be a tad surgical! The decorative designs are rub-ons. I've used rub-ons before. I used to love them as a child. I was being very meticulous and careful and still a tiny part somehow turned missing. So, I got my trusty black pen out and performed some card surgery. It's also good that the rub ons came with all that bling, I could use one as a bandaid. I tried to keep the rest of the card clean and sleek after all that bling was applied.
