...Team Edward

I am pretty sure that every woman in the world knows what I am talking about! One of the sexiest and most romantic vampires in history, Edward Cullen has captured the hearts and necks of women all over the world! LOL! I was so thrilled when I saw that The Greeting Farm had an Edward he not adorable?!? I paired this wonderful stamp with a sentiment from an older Verve set Great Expectations, and it states "guess you're pretty hot stuff now". In my book, the answer is a resounding OH YEAH!

I used this week's My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #95 as a starting point, but I flipped the sketch 90 degrees to the left to accommodate the large image. I also used the Limited Supplies Challenge #234, which was to create a masculine card with no flowers, no ribbon, and no bling...yes....NO BLING! Since I couldn't use any blingage I decided to pierce around the vertical striped panel with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The patterned paper was from the retired Slumber Party Designer Series Paper pack, and I cut the patterned paper oval out using my Big Shot and Spellbinders' Classic Oval Nesties.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you back here tomorrow with a couple of cards and/or projects. Until then...
