Day 56 and work!!

Yesterday I was supposed to work - however, I had NO clients at all. Today began to look a little bleak too - however I JUST got a call and need to go into work. It may be for only one client, but that is ok. But before I go, I need to show you my Day 56 card. For this challenge we were to use acetate - or make a clear card. It could be the front, back or the whole thing. Well, I pondered this one all night (well, ok maybe not ALL night) but just didn't quite know what I wanted to do. After looking at some of the cards already posted I remembered a make-n-take I did on a bus tour last year. Well, I quickly pulled out the supplies (I liked the make-n-take so much I bought one of the items to reproduce the card) and created this card. It was SO fun and quick and easy!! Remember flocking? Yeah, that fuzzy stuff to give dimension to cards 'back in the day' - well I have many of the colors, including black. So, I took these 'class of peel' stickers from Stampendous and flocked the back of one. Then I ran it through my xyron and put it on the acetate which is folded over the white card. I added the checked ribbon to the white card and added another sticker - without flocking and then added the sentiment. Very simple - yet sometimes black and white can be elegant and that is what I think of with this card. Now, I wonder what my husband will think of THIS card - he thought my card yesterday was UGLY and not up to my standards - hmmm, I guess he DOES notice what I do!! :)
Thanks for taking a peek. ~Paula

He may notice what you do, but i'm not sure about his taste because I think this is just fabulous! So striking, and you're right, very elegant! I think I need to use black more in my cards....

I hope you had time to play this weekend. My peeps were to go camping all weekend, but ended up NOT going. So I spent today CLEANING...and nagging said peeps to clean! I hope to make some cards tonight and tomorrow! Maybe we can hook up before I go on my trip since I miss TNT in May!
