I was too busy to post yesterday, but I did get in some crafting with two fun challenges. I started back to work today on a part time basis. With my recent back injury I had not been working for about 5 weeks. I wanted to get in some crafting one more time as I may not have the ability to do it so much with being back at work. I have a herniated disk and sitting is the absolute worst position for that. Of course, I sit for many hours in my job so this may prove to be a challenge. I will work part time for a few weeks and if I can’t even handle that, then surgery is like going to happen. Fingers crossed that won’t be needed!
Okay on to the crafting! Here is the card:
I kept my card pretty close to the sketch, just added more layers. I tend to really like my layers!
Over at Just Us Girls, the color challenge was to use Kraft, Orchid, and White. Pretty colors! I originally wanted to make this a love card because that is something OWH often needs, but I could not find a stamp that fit properly in the square layers. So even though there is a heart theme, it is still a birthday card. I believe it still works, what do you think? I love the little wood veneer hearts. I really hope it will be okay for OWH because thickness can be a concern. I did try to spread them out on the card so that the thickness is equal because this is the suggestion when using raised layers or embellishments for OWH cards.
Hope you have a wonderful Monday and find some time to create this week!
