Day 50

Well folks, I have made it to the halfway point in my 100 Day Challenge.  It's been fun and I am looking forward to the next 50 days.

I promised you guys a special wowza card for today because it's the halfway point.  This card was made for the SCS's Teapot Tuesday's Challenge.  Every week we receive a challenge and if we decide to, we can mail it out to the destination station assigned for that week.  Well, this card's destination station was a young lady named Laura, who unfortunately, was hit by a train last November.  She is doing much better, but still has a long way to go.  She is a walking miracle because not many people who get hit by a train live to tell their story.  God must have an amazing plan for Laura.  She is one special lady.  She is the typical young lady in that she loves clothes, shoes, makeup, and is a romantic at heart.  So, with that in mind, I made this card...

Sorry for the picture quality.  I know it's a little dark.  The image is from a free site for digi stamps.  I decided to go vintage with this image and cinematic by only coloring in the people.  For some reason my printer placed white lines across the image all the way down.  I tried printing it again, and it did the same thing, so I got creative and using my trimmer, I cut the image on each line, placed them with a very small space apart on hot pink card stock to match the color of the dress.I then matted the whole thing on a piece of black card stock.  I matted that on a piece of silver card stock and the card base is a black glittery card stock.  I added a strip of off white lace with pearls, three pearl sprays and a rose.  I sure hope Laura likes it.

Thanks for stopping in today and please keep Laura in your prayers.  She still has a long way to go.  God bless you.

  1. Laura is going to love this! The printer error that you incorporated into the design is so clever and really works to make this creation so very interesting to look at!
