Make It Monday Challenge #3 & JUGS #72
I can't believe that I have this week's MIM card done, photographed, and uploaded already! Yay! :-D This week's challenge is to use a glitter strip (or 3 or 10) on your project. (Here's a link to the challenge here.) I drew the color inspiration from this week's Just Us Girls challenge (here). I loved the combo of aqua, melon, and kraft, and I wanted to give PTI's Melon Berry color some love, LOL! So, this is just a really simple card that I made by combining scraps, basically. I punched a little, stamped a little, and used elements that were just sitting there on my craft desk to make something a bit different for me. The vellum Mat Stack 4 was one I cut for the first MIM challenge and didn't end up using. It looks a lot better here, I think! :-) You can't tell in the picture, but I used a crystalline embossing powder on the sentiment to echo the glitter strip.
