I have two birthday cards to post that I sent to my brother. This first one is from me, and I am using for the House Mouse Challenge. They are having a big birthday blog hop, and I would love to play along, but time is limited, so I'm just posting my card. I believe this image stamp is called "Popping Mouse", colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. Did some sponging around the edges, attached over Tuscan papers. The sentiment was printed from my computer, cut/embossed with Spellbinders Ovals. Added the metal corners after I "aged" them a bit with Copics.
This next card is the one I made for our mother to give to my brother. I followed this week's Midnight Madness sketch. Used the Open Sea set from SU! as well as the nautical SU! papep. Lots of sponging and corner punching. The compass was embossed with gold EP, cut/dry embossed with Spellbinders Circles.
Both of these went together pretty quickly, and I really like how they turned out.
Heading home Monday night, and will be back at the craft table doing wedding decoration stuff for my daughter. Hope to get able to get more cards in as well.
