Another ladies night card.

Here is another card from my ladies night out last Friday. It was such fun making cards with my girlfriends!
I did two corrugated cards that evening, but I mailed the second one already and forgot to take a picture!!!

I have been trying for what seems like forever, to use up these blue chipboard pieces. Every time I tried to make something with them, I ended up placing them back in the Xmas bin and starting over. For once my thoughts  just seemed to come together and I glued that card before I changed my mind. I think it has been hard to use as out of a package of maybe 12 pieces, there are 3 different shades of blue and the different shades don't really go together.

This time it didn't seem to bother me as much...maybe I am getting less picky in my old age! I stickled the heck out of them and that seemed to tone the difference down a bit. I even stickled the scalloped Spellbinder die. Here is a close up of the shimmer.
Another card crossed off the list and will be delivered on Saturday.

Oh, the card is perfect! Could you paint over the chipboard if you don't like the color? You should be tickled pink with how this card came out.

Oh, your comment made me laugh (Ryan Gosling post). Tee hee.
