This is one of Dixie's favorite spots in the house. (Despite the fact that my husband talked me into buying an off-white chair because "the dog can't possible fit in it"! lol!) She looks pretty comfy, doesn't she? :)
This week we are excited to have TWO sponsors (and thus TWO prizes!) at Totally Papercrafts. In addition to our regular sponsor, Meljen Designs, we have a new sponsor, Mayzy Art. I discovered Mayzy's work while blog hopping one day and loved her funky style.
For my card, I decided to take Dixie's cue and go with a "relaxation" theme. I knew Mayzy's Texting Teen image would be perfect!
The alpha dp in the bottom left corner is some paper leftover from my TAC days. The scale's a little off, but I thought the letters reinforced the texting theme. My 13 year old gave me advice on choosing colors for my image. I never would've chosen green (yuck!) for his shirt - but she was right. :) I knew he needed some embellishments (those are SO hard to choose for a guy card!) so I typed up some "text messages" on my computer and added those to my card. I sponged black ink around the edges of all my card elements to reinforce the grunge/Goth look.
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
Pile It On Challenges - Kick Back and Relax
The Poodles Parlour - Use a Digi
Mark's Finest Papers - Masculine Birthday cards (mine's not specifically birthday, but I designed it with that use in mind)
Head on over to the Totally Papercrafts blog to check out how the other girls interpreted my challenge this week. :) And be sure to participate this week for a chance at a prize for one of our TWO sponsors!
