Simply August Thank You - Day 3

On day 3 of the class Heather demonstrated the sponged background technique.  Her project was a Halloween card and she used Rich Razzleberry and Elegant Eggplant to create a beautiful (kind of spooky) background.  I decided not to go with the Halloween theme when I saw a card posted by Liz Goldhawk - it is the second card in her post HERE.

I'm really pleased with my card, but I have to figure out where to put a sentiment.  I may use a small greeting from Tiny Tags, punch it out with the Jewelry Tag punch and hang it from the ribbon with some thread.  For now I like it just as it is.

This is one of the cards Judy and I will be making when we get together this afternoon.

I love the embossed background behind your stamped panel, and the colours just make the image pop. I'm glad you liked my card!
