I cannot believe that the oldest niece on my side of the family is turning 16 in a few days. I had to do the math last night to make sure. Even before Arriana was born, I referred to her as "Little Pookie"...I don't know why. She's in high school now, and I haven't called her Pookie in several years. I made this card for her. Even if I mail it today, it won't arrive in time...I don't like a card to arrive late.
Kristina's color inspiration challenge this week has some nice Fall colors.
This card's 4-squares layout was inspired by p. 62 of the Fall-Winter 2008 catalog. I knew I wanted to use some rub-ons (I forget to use those). I have a confession to make...I hate working with glitter. I love how it looks on projects, but I always get it everywhere. I inked and embossed the raw chipboard and then decided to add some bling to it. It didn't retain the creamy color it had before. I used the Sweet One stamp in So Many Scallops to stamp "Sweet" on some Pumpkin Pie designer paper with Chocolate Chip ink. It doesn't show up very dark.
