I Like Big *BOWS* and I Cannot Lie

Ha. I'm so funny. :-P

ANYWAYS... here's a card for Day 167 at 365 Cards. The challenge was to create a card that looks like a wrapped gift.

The paper I used for the background is actually from an old gift bag. It was too beat up to use on it's own, but there was a big enough piece that was undamaged to justify keeping it for later :-D Even better-- it's sparkly! Which is perfect for "Art Glitter week."

I don't know if you can really see it in the photo, but I used clear embossing powder over the stamped sentiment. I didn't have a light blue ink pad, so I inked the stamp with royal blue and then stamped it a few times on scrap paper to take most of the color off. Then I inked it with my embossing pad, which also has a blue-ish tint to it. The color is almost perfect!
