Catch the bug Free Friday / Merry Christmas

Friday November 21, 2014
 
Yesterday was my birthday and it was a nice day. I had to work and at my age I should be retired.. BUT I guess that will come later. At least I'm still having birthdays... LOL
 
 
I made my card using the negative part of the paper. I have been doing this more and more. I just cant stand throwing away paper and so I used it. The card base is kraft, I used washi tape above and below and I like the contrast against the dark teal. I added a lot of glitter to the ornament. I colored it teal first then added a layer of glitter I like the way the teal comes through and the depth it has. I used the Simon says banner and sentiment for my card. I used various snowflakes and a little stickles in the center of a couple of them. Fun fun card. I hope you find time to get over to Bugaboo to get this fun image.
