Here is the video!

Going at it again… hoping for one day to win one of these challenges ūüôā Anyway… The throwback challenge was to use the Wild Card cartridge for a holiday… well my parents 43 wedding anniversary is a big holiday for us! so here is my card. I also made a video to show how it was made.

I love 365 Cards Challenges because they always give me a visual image to work with. I did an “old” Victorian house using the Heritage cartridge. I folded an 8.5 x 11″ sheet in half from Colorbook – yellow paper – and cut the light blue layer from a piece of scrap I also had from Colorbook pastels. The layer is 5″ X 8″. The house is found on page 39 and was cut at 4.5″¬† I embossed with my Cuttlebug using the Houndstooth folder. I distressed the house using Martha Steward metallic inks. I cut my own curtains and the “stained glass” in the windows with older scraps from Martha Steward glitter paper. Here is mine take on the “old” challenge:

Like the night owl I am… my inspiration came late tonight. I was thinking about it the whole weekend so here is my entry.

Materials:
Green paper in the card (8.5 x 11″ – folded in half) by The Paper Company
Yellow paper: Potpourri value cardstock from Big Lots – cut at 5: x 8″
Bassinet paper: Pastels by Colorbook –¬† Cut using CD Studio at 4.5″ x 5″ tall
A Star is Born – tag by Paper Bliss
Star – jewel found at my local fashion district in Downtown Los Angeles
Flowers – found at my local fashion district in Downtown Los Angeles

I marked the bassinet’s scallops with my Sharpies fine points – sold at Office Depot – new Caribbean colors.

I embossed the bassinet with my Cuttlebug hearts folder.

Used 3D-Dots to glue the bassinet to the card.

 

I made this for MPS Team Design Contest but since I did not get chosen I will now publish this card that I am very proud of.¬† I spent a lot of time on it. I has a lot of bling to it… I hope you all like it.
