Lime Splashed Thanks

I've been super busy around the house lately (cleaning things up and reorganizing... fun times!) so I've been out of my crafts space for far too long.  I decided I was due some real fun so took a break from all of the house work to play along with a couple challenges.

Here's the card I came up with:

Seems pretty simple, right?  It took FOREVER because I had problems with the white chevron piece.  I don't know what it was, but I just couldn't get the image stamped and embossed to my liking.  I think I repeated it five times before I finally got this one.  The black card base is the same image stamped then embossed with clear embossing powder to give a little pop to the background with out being overwhelming.

And a view of the inside:

The challenges I'm playing along with are:

Well I guess I've procrastinated long enough... back to the grind!

  4. Isn't it funny how the cards that look more simple seem to take forever. I have exactly the same thing happen with some of mine. You got there in the end though, great job, really funky card! Thanks so much for joining in the fun with us over at The Play Date Cafe this week!
