Celebrating 29 again?!



This is my card for July's Monthly Challenge for the Creative Card Chicks.  This group is a kind of mystery image swap, where we each get an image and additional items to complete the challenge each month.  I am is the hostess this month and sent everyone this hilarious Art Impressions image, along with a few sentiments. 

I colored the image with Copics and layered three ribbons--chevron on the button, then a white grosgrain, topped by baker's twine.  I also added baker's twine to the buttons in the corner.  And yes, I do celebrate 29 every year!

Members of the Creative Card Chicks to post our cards between the 21st and 23rd of each month--so if you check the blogs on my sidebars today or in the next few days, you may see more of these wonderful creations!  Paula is the hostess for August, and I am sure she has a fun image and challenge in mind for us!  Stay tuned!
