Art Impressions Challenge #70

     Happy Monday morning!  The heat wave has broken, and we can get on with our everyday lives now.  This week the challenge over on the Art Impressions blog, is to use a metal accent.

     My card creation starts with a white base, followed by layers of designer paper from gosh only knows where.  (so glad the makers put their name on things now)  For the metal accents, I used an embossed metal border, silver eyelets, and an apple charm that I thought fit in with the "get well" theme.  Coloring was done with Copic markers, and sponging was done with VersaMagic, pink grapefruit ink.  The sentiment was computer generated inside and out.  (inside: You'll feel better in no time!)  My Art Impression stamp is H-1235.  I call her Nurse Nasty.  LOL!  The only other additions are some peach and white bakers twine and Pop Dots.

     I was the proud winner of this challenge last week, with my gift card holder.  Thanks again AI for such fun challenges.  Very happy to see so many more entries this week!  Stop over and play along.  There are still a couple of days until the challenge closes!

Mary Anne,
This one really brings a smile to my face, it reminds me of this past weekend at my sister in laws. She is a nurse and we laughed til our sides hurt with some of her stories. Love the embossed metal strip.
