Now on to today's post. Today is my niece's 13th birthday. I decided to take this occasion to participate in the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch challenge. It has been a couple of weeks since I have participated in any challenges, and I miss them!
So here's the card I made. The color combo came from the small bottles of nail polish I bought for her as a token gift (the real gift is the cash, of course!). The nail polishes were black, fuschia and teal, so I went with CTMH's Black, Watermelon and Juniper. I once again stamped up some plaid background and went with that preteen "rocker" look. Kazan's sketch was so fun to work with - I just might need to try it again!
I made a quick little box to hold the nail polishes. No template, just measured the bottles and went from there. I die-cut a window on the box top with my Spellbinder's Labels 8 die, and added a piece of transparency film. The stitching was hand drawn with my white gel pen. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
