Glitterbabe's Challenge!

OH MY! It has been a week since I have been here! I am struggling to keep afloat here but this too shall pass! I almost forgot to post my card for the challenge today!! Well if you haven't already been to Glitterbabe's Challenge today, please stop by to see what the rest of the DT created for this week and play along with us! Glitterbabe has lots of freebies to use and we would sure love to have you play along! This week's challenge is to use the colors red, purple, and yellow. Well this was right up my alley for a special card I had wanted to try. My neighbor's mother is an AVID Red Hat Society lady and I had wanted to use one of Stef's lovely 3 hats to design a card for her...what an awesome opportunity! Doesn't that hat just scream HATTITUDE!!?? The sentiment was computer generated by myself. the embossed card was created using the Cuttlebug Perrenials Embossing Plus folder. Before removing the paper from the folder, I colored over the embossed areas using a copic marker. When I trimmed the embossed paper, I intentionally cut it a little short so I could have that red border on the left hand side of the card...which I scored a line through using the Scor Pal. I hope my neighbor's mother likes the card...and hope you do too! Well I am off for now...I have some packing to do for a trip. I will be in Phoenix AZ all next week and need to start getting things together. Thanks for stopping in to see me! I hope your day was a blessed one. I will be by to see each of you later on today or early tomorrow morn!
