I just had to make something

I didn't do any crafting yesterday and nothing till now today. To be honest, I'm not feeling like doing anything, but thought I'd have a go, although I'm not happy with what I've done.

I decided to make a card for Cuttlebug inspiration 19: embossed acetate. I chose the diamonds embossing folder, ran it through the xyron and stuck it to DCWV textured card - not very clear on the scan - you can see it slightly better if you click on the picture. I'll try in daylight tomorrow to get a photo that shows the embossing more clearly.

I followed the Tamara's card sketch 83:
It's good to see Ooh La La back again with challenge 29: stripes (which are on this card) - and the theme on Created by Hand this week is also 'stripes'.

The background patterned paper is a doubled sides PM silk screened (can't remember what it's called and I'd cut the strip off) - the stripey bit is the other side of the paper. The sentiment is computer generated.

Please also see my later attempt here.

And please don't forget my blog candy - there's less than a week now to be in with a chance to win.
