Virgo Blue Card (LMMS Challenge #170)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today a new challenge starts at Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge Blog. It's #170, Anything Goes Challenge.

For this challenge I made this CAS (clean and simple), Virgo Blue Card.

I made this card for Biljana, my sister-in-law, who's birthday will be this Sunday. :o)

For my card I used a beautiful LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Polka Dot Pals Ximena' digital stamp.

I printed the image on a watercolor paper panel and left it aside for a while. I colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. I fussy cut the image leaving thick white border around it.

I wanted some dimension on this card, as I planed to keep it very simple. I cut a white square cardstock paper panel, stamped a sentiment VIRGO on it, glued the panel on a foam sheet square and glued it on a white square top folded card base. Then I glued foam scraps on the back of the image and glued it on the card. As a finishing touch, I embellished the card with blue sequins and covered earrings and necklace with a clear gloss resin to create glossy accents. :o)

To make the card sturdier, I glued a white cardstock paper panel inside the card. :o)

Card dimensions: 95 mm x 95 mm (3 3/4" x 3 3/4")
