Lime Tart Sketch Challenge!

I made a card for the Limetart Sketch Challenge which you can find here

The stamps are from justjohanna. The scalloped borders are Doodlebug Frills, which I just love since I'm not a whiz with the scissors. The paper was white, but it didn't contrast enough with the border which made the cute little skull/crossbones get lost in all the black & white. So I crumpled up the paper, inked it with blue & red Distress Inks, sprayed it with water, and let the ink spread. Then I ironed it til it was dry and relatively flat. Adding the color to the white paper made a huge difference! The card was a bit bulky, which made it scan a bit dark.

This card is for one of my friends who is turning 50 soon. Birthday greetings and more obnoxious age-related comments will be added to the inside of the card!

Thanks for visiting today!
