CPS Card 11: Have A Happy Day

JAN 29 - FEB 18, 2012

CPS Sketch #170
Day #11 at the CPS party means it's time for Card #11from me. Today's host is Jennie Harper and her sketch of choice is CPS #170 from June 2010. For my card, I stayed true to the original sketch. I went with green as the predominant colour and red to break the monotony. I made this card for a girlfriend. She's currently basking in the victory of her football team - they've made it to a final of some sort and she's positively delirious (with lucid intervals!). You may have already guessed it - her team sports the colour green! Here's my card:

The patterned papers are from Papermania's Capsule Collection by Tina Higgins. For the ribbon border I used X-Cut's Border Punch on some pine green CS.
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it in using Promarkers. And I could not help but play around with some Stickles for her dress ! 
I used Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles to cut out the image, did some stencilling with TH's Antique Linen and hoisted it up on some pop dots. ...and then I found myself reaching out for more bling...oh well, why resist!
Here's the inside of the card: a simple border ... in green!
And that completes card 11. Thank you for dropping by and I look forward to seeing you again for the unveiling of Card #12   ;-)
