Happy Birthday ~ Make it Monday

happybirthday

Good morning!! Well, I survived Monday and the week’s already half done :)  I was looking around for some new challenges this week and thought I’d participate in PTI’s Make It Monday.  You watch the video on Nichole’s blog and then make a card to enter into the weekly contest.  I’m sooooo glad they made it a random winner…that way it’s fun for EVERYONE not just the uber talented designers out there :)  The challenge was to use scor tape and glitter.  I love this way of applying glitter.  I broke out my gallon of Martha Stewart Antique silver glitter that will last forever ;)  {KWIM? lol} I had this pretty piece of Webster’s Pages dp on my desk from my PTI blog hop cards (come back Friday for those!) and then just started adding some little bits of loveliness :)  The sentiment looked so lonely all by its lonesome so I added a couple of gems to make it happy  (ok, and me! lol).  I smudged the edges with tea dye ink and had a hard time convincing myself that it’s for the “aged” look and NOT to redo the whole card because of a “smudge.”  I really meant for it to be there, but the “anal” part of me is cringing!  EEK!  That’s all for me…I’m off this weekend for a romantic getaway with the dh but I’ll have a few scheduled posts while I’m away.  Thanks for visiting :)

Oooh Diva does shabby chic vintage with STYLE! That's no "smudge" that's distressed style and I'm so glad you didn't re-do the card :D
Enjoy your romantic getaway - where ya heading?
Hugs,
