AAA Cards #49

Morning friends it's time to announce the latest challenge details 
over at AAA Cards and the theme is 'Word Play' so
we'd like to see you using mainly words and here's a little
photo inspiration to help you out.



The scrabble idea inspired me to incorporate into my card using a basic alphabet 
set from Clearly Besotted and MFT Die-namics lower case letters which are
 coloured using Distress Inks, Wink of Stella and a coat of Glossy Accents. 
I've also tried out a background technique that I've seen around Blogland where an
 embossed panel is inked with Distress Inks for added colour and texture. 
I've also added Perfect Pearls to make it shimmer even more. The basket weave 
folder is from WeR Memory Keepers and to finish some sequins from my stash.


I hope you find some time to play along and before you zip off to your
craft space please check out the designs from my fellow teamies over
at the AAA Card blog HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fun and crafty week!

Sarah

  7. So clever and pretty and a gorgeous background! Thanks for your get well wishes Sarah - I so much appreciated them. Thankfully I am much better now, although I still have some vision problems - they may never fully resolve, but at least I have one healthy eye left!
