International Highlights Winners Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  I am so excited to be participating in the International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop.  A few weeks ago, I participating the the masculine themed highlights challenge.

This was my card:

Thank you so very much to everyone who voted for my card!  Today, the top 10 from that challenge are all participating in a blog hop.

We are continuing to use the masculine theme from the highlights, for our hop.
Here is my card:

I wanted to use my new Happy Birthday Thinlits Die.  I am really loving that thinlit.  It is part of the Foil Frenzy product suite found on pages 76 & 77 of the new  annual catalog.

I used the well loved Hardwood background stamp with Versamark and Copper Embossing Powder to create a subtle, almost tone on tone background.   I used one of the Layering Oval Framelits to cut a peek-a-boo into my card.  I used two ovals to make a frame, using Copper Foil Paper.  I was able to raise my frame with the Foam Adhesive Strips.  I used my Fine Tip Glue to attach my Happy Birthday Thinlit to the copper frame.

I finished off my card with some Copper Trim.  The Copper Trim was a lot more successful than expected, and so it is currently not available.  But it will be in just a few weeks.

That is all I have to share for today.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
Next up on our hop is the fabulous Cheryll!  I know you'll enjoy her project!
