A photo card

Have been wanting to make at least one photo card after seeing many inspirations from the Hero Arts blog weeks ago. Then, when I saw sketch #33 from 52 sketches...52 weeks, I knew immediately that, this is the time to make a photo card. My mom's birthday is on Sept 1st, so I made this.

This one card serves 3 purposes. One, for my mom's birthday (obviously), two for submission to 52 sketches...52 weeks and three, for submission for SPCC colour combo challenge.

And, I must admit, I'm indeed in love with Cosmo Cricket line of papers. Here, again I'm using the Earth Love collection.

Sketch #33

Color combo challenge at SPCC

My end product

Cardstock - Core'dinations (my favourite), Matte paper
Patterned paper - Cosmo Cricket Earth Love collection
Others - Making Memories Buttons, felt, StazOn Ink, Ranger Opaque White Gel Pen
