Celebrate You

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I'm sure my whole week will seem "off" this week as my kiddos were sick today and we stayed home from church.  You know how it is when you miss that week "marker" whatever it may be, the rest of the days just never seem to be the right day!  I'll probably keep thinking each day is Thursday or something, lol! 

I am going to share a card with you that I made with the "leftovers" from this rainbow card that I posted the other day.

On my previous card, I made a rainbow with glittery pieces of cardstock cut from the Lil' Inkers rainbow die.  For this card I took those leftover pieces and used them as a design element.  This card is for my husband and so I wanted to stick with a masculine theme while still getting away with some glittery goodness!! :)  And, since I knew that my husband probably wouldn't appreciate a ribbon or bow too much I used some of my FAVORITE twine in the world, and the BEST twine too if I do say so myself, from The Twinery!

I attached the twine through the frame by punching tiny holes through the frame and threading one strand of the Maraschino twine through the holes.  The frame is popped up on pop dots so that it lays flat.  I really like how the frame and the twine and the rainbow pieces all work together!

I'm entering this card in two challenges.  The first one is for Crazy 4 Challenges C4C92, which is a new one for me.  Their theme this week was to make a card that uses twine, floss, string, etc on a card. 

The 2nd challenge is Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge #60 to create a card with a party theme.

Thank you for stopping by!! I hope you enjoyed this card!
