Lime Tart Sketch v2.0 or I'm really a magpie.

Here's another card using the Lime Tart sketch.

It looks much better irl with the blue in the circle not quite as screamingly blue. I don't think my scanner likes shiny. I guess that it's not a magpie like me.

Anyways, I used these cool German lacy metallic diecut borders that I found at Artchix Studios. I love their stuff because it's shiny and fun and appeals to my inner magpie.

When I was at CHA, I found that I gravitated towards anything sparkly. My friends kept losing me because of this, but being smart ladies, quickly realized that if there was "bling" anywhere around, I'd be there, gazing longingly at the sparkly bits.

I don't wear much jewelry, but I do tend to either like very funky or the expensive stuff with gemstones galore. This predilection extends itself to my crafting. I'm so happy that bling is trendy, though in truth, I've been using geegaws for quite some time. Twinklin H20s are also used frequently. Metallic paints? Yep. Them too.

But I digress. The card could be used for either a Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), a holiday card, or a get well card. I chose to make this card an all purpose card and will add whatever greeting to the inside.

The stamp is justjohanna. The sketch is from LimeTart. The cool gold glittery scallops and star strip are from Artchix. I used Tsukineko's Galaxy Gold ink and colored the rest of the circle with a Prismacolor marker. Pretend the blue matches the "Chicken Little" patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket. Because it really does.

Haa. I'm verbose today.

Thanks for stopping by!
