As most of my friends know, Halloween isn’t my favourite season so this card isn’t about Halloween but is an anniversary card. Filling in the blank at the As You See It challenge is easy though, because filling in the blank for me would be fireworks. Yes they are pretty and if going off at a professional event I quite enjoy them, but the ones at local home parties scare the heck out of me. This year the fear is made worse by the fact that everything is so dry so a mistake has the potential to create disaster. As well, when still a teenager, local kids threw firecrackers at me and I guess I’ve never quite gotten over it. As this card is using embossing in the design I decided to add it to the challenge at CYHTH even though I didn’t add the optional twist of pumpkins. I may use the other half of the layer to add pumpkins as a second entry into that challenge.
My card has been created with fireworks in mind and I used a Gemini folder to emboss the design and then cut the piece in half. I used small sponges to add some colour and a gold glitter pen too. The sentiment is from an MFT Itty Bitty Basics set and I curved it on the block so it would follow the embossed curve. I thought fireworks were a nice way to celebrate an anniversary as well as any other celebration. Embellishments are from my stash. Thanks for spending some time with me and have a lovely Sunday!
