Third post!!! YIKES

Three in one day! YIKES - why three, I hear you cry! Well Chrissie and Mandi over at Simply Less Is More set the challenge of METALLIC this morning and it's plainly struck a chord. So here is my 2nd challenge card, entitled "Best BUDS"!!!!



Materials used:
  • C6 300gsm Kraft card and matching envelope
  • Circle of black card edged with versacolor gold ink
  • Kaisercraft sentiment inked on to white card cut in to banner style shape and distressed with Barn Door - this was also edged with gold but really doesn't show up well!
  • Bottle top flattened with hubby's fair hand!
Hope your Saturday is going swimmingly!

Hi Kathy, wow, you are on a roll - love both your entries for Less Is More, and your scrapbook page looks great too. Your hubby did a great job of flattening the bottle top, did he polish off the beer first LOL.
