T-shirt inspired card

Those of you who saw the awesome $3 t-shirts I got in my shopping spree that I posted about yesterday will recognise the elements of this card. Not only did I love them, but I'm going back to the shop today to try and get a couple for my sister and Miss Treez...won't we look cute all wearing matching shirts? Anyway, I loved the design so much that I decided to make this card:I've used a Basic Black card base and Basic Gray for the layer. I got out the So Swirly wheel and wheeled over the Gray with Black ink. Then I embossed the butterflies and dragonflies with White and Black embossing powders on vellum CS and cut them out. The big dragonfly is from Bugs and Kisses, the black butterflies are from Time Well Spent, and the small dragonflies and butterflies are from A Little Bit of Happiness. Both of the last two mention sets are Hostess sets. I finished it off with a rub on sentiment from the Urban West rub ons on Black CS and some narrow Black grosgrain ribbon.

Once I'd embossed and cut out all the dragonflies and butterflies it was really rather quick to make....but the embossing and cutting out was a bit time consuming! I did emboss extra ones as I have plans to make a few more of these. I am also thinking about making a small canvas to hang on my wall....yes, I really do love this design!

I love it so much that I'm going to give it away!! Yes, that's right. Any other cards that I make won't have the same sentiment, because I only had the one in white, though I could do one with the sentiment in black on some gray CS I suppose. Anyway, if you want this card all you have to do is leave a comment on this post by Wednesday night, and on Thursday I will randomly draw a winner and send it to them. The inside of the card has a piece of white CS with some decorative bits, so that you can write a message and it also comes with a decorated envelope {well, it will once I decorate it!!}.

Everyone is eligible to enter....there is no discrimination tolerated here!!! So, leave me a comment and this card can be yours!

Have a great day,
Kristie
