Overkill



My really good friend, Jen, set me a challenge to case one of her cards whilst my mojo had gone out drinking and partying and I finally although it looks nothing like Jen's original card, lol which is

here

She insisted it be in black and white, so it is definitely black and white, lol. It is also a card I did for this week's technique challenge on Splitcoaststampers which was to use a set you had never used before. Well, I have had this set for months and just couldn't think of anything to do with it, everything I thought of had already been done! sigh!

It was also to use embellishments that you rarely use, I rarely use the gingham ribbon or the eyelets, I use brads and grosgrain.

I have also find it really hard to use my scallop and word window punches. I had to have them and now rarely use them. The scallop punch especially is not as versatile as I thought it would be, but now I will use it more as I now have my Cricut which can cut smaller or larger circles for more depth.

The sentiment at the bottom is actually mounted on the back of the card and hole is cut out of the front.

I really like how this card turned out, so thanks Jen, you're one in a million (that's what the sentiment says) I love ya sweetie!

Also saw this on SCS this morning. It's quite stunning. I like it. Well done. :)

Oh, as a side note I LOVE gingham ribbon. Although I have almost forgotten how to set an eyelet. LOL.

I love this one Allie. Done up in
B/W seems to make it look so much richer.
