Ab Fab

Hello! Hope your World Card Making Day was FAB! I made some time to craft yesterday, and I managed to combine several challenges for this little card: Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #17, SCS's WCMD challenge to use dimension (dimensionals were used on the aqua layer), and the Pile It On challenge to make it 3D (the embossing and flower/button combo). Whatcha think?

On a side note, the title of this post reminded me of the hilarious Brit comedy Absolutely Fabulous (Ab Fab for short). Anyone else ever watch old episodes on Comedy Central? Jennifer Saunders is a hoot!

Stamps: Absolutely Fabulous (SU)
Paper: Kraft, Very Vanilla, Aqua Mist

Ink: Chocolate Chip

Accessories: Cuttlebug Textile Texture, Fiskars upper crest punch, Prima flowers, PTI button, Kaisercraft pearls, dimensionals

This is perfection to me!

Susan (peebsmama) said...

My fave part of this is the simple, embossed white panel in the center. Gives the card a cool visual effect.

I did see AbFab on BBC America a long time ago.
