Monogram for Me!

As we all know, when we normally make cards, they're not made for ourselves - they are made for somebody else. Well, over at The Pink Elephant this week, they asked for a Monogram. So I figured, what the heck - about time I make one for me!

And I am sure you all realize by now that this will hit a couple of challenges...four to be exact!

  • As stated above - The Pink Elephant asked for a Monogram. This particular monogram was made from the QuicKutz Moxie alphabet.
  • The layout is the sketch challenge over at Eat, Sleep, Stamp this week
  • Over at If the Shoe Fits - there's a Negative Die Cut challenge going on. As you can see, I used the negative on the V and popped it up so the white would show through. This is however I forum challenge, but it's well worth joining!
  • Last, but certainly not least, another challenge blog for me - Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge blog asked for glitter - in whatever form you choose! I hope you can see it but both the background cardstock as well as the bright pink of my V and flourishes is all glittered.

Vickilyn, 4 challenges in one is a great thing! :) You did a fab job on your take of this week sketch, I really like the background paper and your use of swirl to enhanced the monogram! Monogram cards are a bit hard for me to do but this one just works for me, thanks for sharing!!!
