Good Luck!

Just a Good Luck card, or a graduation card - something along that effect for you today!

I have to say that this layout is from a beautiful Becky Oehlers card in the magazine (oh my what a magazine!) A Card a Day - 

I may change the title and I will let you know the page it is on, but right now I am upstairs, it is late and I am tired.....and maybe a bit grumpy - Smiley from can you tell?  

I used alot of backgrounders in this card - they are soooo versatile and useful!

I stamped various backgrounders onto Dark Chocolate cardstock using Fresh Snow Ink. Then I cut them out in a circle shape and sponged Fresh Snow ink around the edges of the circles.

I used the Interlocking Star backgrounder from DRS Designs, the woodgrain backgrounder from WPlus9 Designs and one of the backgrounders from Waltzingmouse Stamps Pic-Nic Patterns and OffBeat Backgrounds.

I coloured in a few of the stars in the Interlocking Star Backgrounder with my white gel pen and then added gems to the stars to pretty it up! I also added more gems beside the sentiment which is from Waltzingmouse Stamps Fancy Phrases!

Then I added some Dark Chocolate satin ribbon which just seemed to pull it all together!!

Thanks for coming around - I am heading to bed and hopefully better humour tomorrow!!!

  1. This is very cool, Bonnie! I love the colors and the great sketch!

    I hope you're having a better day today! :)

  2. The colors and design are fab! Have a great weekend!

  3. Love the way you used the circles!

  4. Oh my! I am loving these colors! The card is fantastic!! Love the ribbon and those circles that you stamped! I thought it was designer paper until I read that you had stamped it! Beautiful job! Hope today is much better for you!!

  5. Bonnie - Brown is not one of "my" colors, but I love this card (and the colors). What a great idea for your backgrounders...thanks! I never would have thought about doing that just randomly for shapes (I've done it for specific things, but not just any shape) I hope you slept well and are feeling more like yourself.
