MFT Double Dip

Computer is acting up, so will get right to the card. Don't want the darn thing to crash. If it does, I don't care where in the world you live, you'll hear me scream! Anyway....

Got a card for a little friend's birthday. I used the MFT Sketch and Color Challenge as my jumping off point and love how it turned out!



And I made this:


Started with a kraft base, and added a navy scrap on the left, and found the lovely aqua one in the scrapbox as well. I punched out a hole that goes through the kraft and aqua layers, and made a "mover" card. It doesn't shake much, but it definitely moves. Random red sequins between the clear sheets. You can see half the base, and half my photo background in the cut out. Looks interesting to me...Anyway...Cut the '5' with my Silhouette, and used an MFT die and stamps for this. Running now...happy dances...

What a fun card Bev! I love the colors of the challenge too. I think it is cool that you made this card move like that and I'm sure that whoever get's it will love it! I hope your computer hangs on longer for you!! I don't want to hear to scream here in PA. lol Hugs, Brenda

This is a fun peek-a-boo element! Very creative!
I take you haven't purchased a new computer yet...?

Wonderful use of the colors, and that "mover" is going to get a lot of pokes from a certain five year old's finger! Fantastic card!

Just GORGEOUS! I'd definitely be doing a happy dance (or two) if I could pull off a design this graphically cool. Love your color scheme!
