Birthday card for Lloyd (FIL) using Mojo Monday 100 Teresa sketch
This Saturday is my Father-in-law's birthday, so I made this card for him using the Mojo Monday turns 100 sketch by Teresa.
I knew I wanted to try the faux leather (wallets) I've seen, but I don't have any UTEE, so I gave it a shot with 2 coats of Clear Embossing Powder. It worked okay; the second photo kinda pics up the light to show it better, although you might have to click on it to get a better view.
I used my Nestabilites for the oval by cutting it out and using the scrap piece as a mask.
Happy Birthday, Lloyd! (...and many more...)
