~A Number~

I've never participated in Our Craft Lounge's Challenge before and they have hit their 100th!

Great time to jump in, don't you think? ;)

I used a NUMBER-#2 in my card(to meet the numbers category).

Well, actually, the number was IN the sentiment.

It still works, right?

Also, I used a technique from Nichole's Make It Monday #49 Ghost Masking...very very cool.

Check out the video from Betsy Veldman
 to learn the deets.

Here's my creation:
(Stamps: Papertrey Ink Game On,PTI All Booked UP;Ink:Memento:london fog,sweet plum,bamboo leaves,rich cocoa;Die:Marvy Punch;Paper:Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses DP,Georgia Pacific white,American Crafts AC cardstock,DCWV natural stack,Vellum for masking;Other:Martha Stewart Fringe scissors,stapler)
The front is shorter than the back...I have the back piece fringed.
My Marvy punch was a wee bit too big for the circle...but I moved it accordingly (when I stamped)to get it as close to the line as possible.
My colors were pulled from The PlayDate Cafe PDCC115.

Thank you for stopping by today. ;)
