So I stuck with a black, white and red theme, because I do plan on sending this to Lameka, and I want it to match her scrap room. :)
I should have taken a better picture, but the Eiffel Tower is on some pop up dots.
I tried to keep it simple.
The other part of our challenge was a hello card. I saw this idea (which I can happily and proudly say) I stumbled upon on Split Coast. The person, I lifted it from, AMAZING!!! Except now I can't find her blog...but when I do, I will add it to the blogs we watch. Because she is sooo talented.
This is the front. I kept it simple, because the inside drove me crazy!Pay no mind to my unmanicured fingernails....:) But this is an overview of the inside.
Here is another shot of the bird. I used the Stampin Up punch for the bird and I used pop ups on the wings. I did both sides of the bird so they are matching. The bubble coming out of the birds mouth says "hi."
The flash on my camera doesn't allow you to see it too well...but hopefully you get a good idea of what it looks like. The grass punch is a Martha Stewart punch I purchased from Michaels...with a coupon do doubt. :)
The next time I attempt this card, I will make the 'tree' on the inside bigger. It didn't round out as much as I would have liked it to....But I can always pick apart my creations...so I will leave it as it is, and I hope the recipient likes it!
PS...Are my projects Marc approved?!?!
