Time to Celebrate!

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. This fortnight’s theme is ‘Celebrate!’ and Happy Little Stampers is our sponsor.

For my card I used one of my old wood-mounted Amuse Studio stamps. I love using it for celebratory cards! Anyway, after I embossed it, I blended some distress ink to create the background and added some light shadows using a Prismacolour pencil.

I decided to use a black card base for added impact so once I decided where the image was going to go, I embossed a small Penny Black sentiment. I stuck the image on to my card, but felt that the card still needed ‘something’. After pondering for a while, I decided to added a banner that I’d cut from some gold mirror card – which I think finishes the card off quite well!

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Guest Designer Ros from Mikey’s Mom blog. She has some amazing creations on her blog, so please drop by her site!

I’m also adding this to the current Just Us Girls challenge – silhouette stamping.

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!

  1. Such a fabulous card! I love the pop of red against the black and the addition of the gold just makes this card complete. 😉
