Well, happy Thursday! I hope that your week is going well!
The card I have to share with you today is one that I made for a friend's daughter. She just turned 16 and I wanted to send her what I hope is an age appropriate card! :-) AND, hopefully she will like it soooo much that she will forget about it being late!! (I know, my bad!)
I have a "thing" for texture! I just love adding it to my projects...weather it be with embellishments, embossing, dry embossing, sewing, ink distressing, or roughing up the edges...I love it all! You know, I think I actually added all of those things on this card! LOL!
After embossing the background pieces using my Scor-Pal, I rubbed some Chocolate Chip ink over the edges, as well as stitching in random places. The "You Rock" sentiment and star (both from Verve Stamp's You Rock set) are both embossed using Chocolate Chip craft ink and Clear Detail embossing powder. To accentuate the swirls and little star, I added some turquoise colored mini rhinestones.
Well, that's all from me today! I hope you have a blessed day! ~Laurie
