Exam results, and a card


Well, well, another week flew by!...
First of all, I wanted to share my exam results, as I never expected to get 86% and a Distinction!.. :) woo hoo!... so that was brill, and I am now looking forward to starting again in October. :)

Anyway, the above card was made for my nephews birthday, and as he is a bit of a Goth like me (Im very proud of him! LOL) I thought I would stick with something quite dark.

Its brightened up quite a bit in the picture, but you get the idea.
This card is for the Sugar Nellie, PCP Challenge and this week it was embossing.  I embossed the black card with a spot design in my cuttlebug (not clear on pic) but I promise I did  :)

I used a Sugar Nellie stamp called Goth Girl, which I love, and the papers are by Creative Imaginations, and the epoxy sentiment is by March Johnson.  I coloured the silver edges using a marker, and followed Marlenes sketch for the Sugar Bowl challenge.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

The Sugar Bowl - Sketch by Marlene
Crafty Cardmakers - Birthday
Ooh La La Creations - Spots and dots (spotty embossed black card, and silver dots)
Papertake Weekly - something old - the papers are old, Something new - the stamp is new
Passion for ProMarkers - Music.  This is inspired by goth rock

Thanks so much for looking, and good luck to everyone in these challenges

Great way of using that sketch - like the offsetting concept. That sentiment is rather appropriate & I like that you're giving a Goth Girl to your nephew.
Take care of yourself & enjoy the time before you're buried in your books again.
