HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, LYNETTE & JIM

This is a card I made for my friend, Lynette, and her husband who are celebrating their anniversary today. 
 
Using post-it notes, I masked the top and bottom portion of the card front and sponged SU Close to Cocoa and Dusty Durango inks in the open area.  Then I stamped a Penny Black design with Close to Cocoa.  I stamped it off onto scrap paper once.  Next I huffed on the stamp so that any ink that was left could be stamped one more time onto the card with a shadow affect.
 
Some of the gals on our Yahoo Group have been doing this on cards and I love the affect of the sponged ban across the front of a card.  I had so much fun doing it that I made several more cards using different colors.  They will probably show up here too.
 
(NOTE:  I forgot to take a picture of this card before I sent it to Jim and Lynette so I "borrowed" the picture she took of it.)
 
Thank you for stopping by!  Won't you tell me what you think?
