40 Love

Welcome to the start of August's Members' Blog Hop from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.  I chose the first challenge: to keep to just one layer for my project, adding only embellishments.

A friend turned 40 recently and I decided to send her a card made using Tagxedo:

Jimjams - Card - Tagxedo 40th

Just one layer of printer ink ... glammed up with a few small crystals so that it can still be posted as a normal letter (the Royal Mail is annoyingly picky about all three dimensions).

I wonder which of this month's challenges will feature on the next stop on the hop: Tina's blog.

If you get lost whilst hopping the full order is published on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog today.

Beautiful card-lovely take on the challenge!

Lizzie said...

Very nice! I like how you chose gems that contrast with the colours of the card, rather than just matching ones.
I've been caught by Royal Mail's "too thick" thing, with a birthday card - much better to be cautious; you even have room for a thin layer of paper or bubble wrap, to protect the gems!
