Another Day, Another Season

Oh well, our Eagles lost yesterday. We can't get upset about the loss because 5 weeks ago we didn't even think they would be in the play-offs! During the game yesterday, amist the newly invented cuss words from DH and the telephone ringing after each play, I managed to get a card done. It was inspired by the Cinema Saturday Casablanca challenge. The goal was to design a card using black, white and your choice of 1 color that was a reminder of the movie. I chose to highlight the vivid tile work of Morocco.

The card is done on a 5 X 7 base. I stamped each of the "tiles" with Versamark and heat embossed each one. The black oval tile was also heat embossed. I used my Nesties to form the frame for the oval tile and randomly stamped the white background.
CTMH – White, Black and Moonstruck
Technology Tuesday – Casablanca
Ink – Stamp Pads
CTMH – Moonstruck and VersaMark
Heat gun and Nestabilities

I am currently working on a scrapbook LO to post later this afternoon. For now, Happy Crafting!
