I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! We did a whole lot of nothing...which is nice. Went out to eat Friday night for my husbands birthday and then came home and played Borderlands 2 together...all weekend :) It was nice. I'm not much of a video game player but sometimes we find one that works for both of us and we just play the crap out of it :)
But alas...the weekend had to end..I don't like Mondays. I love having my husband home with me. I love not having to really do anything because it's the weekend. But they always end...oh well :)
Today starts a new challenge at Paper Makeup and this week is a favorite-Anything Goes!! Super easy :)
Paper Makeup has so many wonderful images, I needed a little help choosing which one to use. So I had him choose/come up with a theme. His explanation for this image was "the only reason my brother and I ever checked our height was to see if we were tall enough to go on the rides." Makes sense :) So I ran with that idea. I printed off some Disney paper and followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday.
The image is Beyond Measure, colored with my colored pencils. I typed up and printed out the sentiment, then trimmed around it with my scallop scissors. The stars are cut from the George cartridge and I made up some buttons to go in the centers, then strung some cord around them. I added a few black and white staples to the corners...not sure if I like how they look but they were fun to try for once. I drew in some stitching and added some black and yellow ribbon and it was done!
I'm actually very happy with how it turned out! Not my normal theme for a card but I love it :)
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday #226
