First up Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the USA!
It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being the November hostess, I continue to issue the challenges this week.
Today is Thanksgiving in the USA and tomorrow is Black Friday. Many will be taking advantage of the sales. Create a card with a shopping theme, the card must also include the color black on it somewhere.
I know I have a number of shopping themed stamps in my stash, but it took me a while to find one I wanted to use for this challenge and then I found out the image would fit on the Gift Card Accordion card, so I thought it might be fun to make a birthday card with a shopping theme, that you are giving the birthday girl a gift card to buy her own gift!
Here is a close up of the first two pages of my Accordion card.
Here is the front of my card when it is ready to be placed in an envelope. I got so carried away making this card, that I forgot to add the black ... fortunately I used black ink to stamp everything on the first page of my card and just for good measure I added black rhinestones on the frames on the front and two pages on the inside. I can't get the challenge wrong when I have set the challenge after all haha.
