Playing with Zodiac...

Hello Everyone,

Hope you had a fantastic Easter, and that at least some of you had a long(er) weekend! I had today off but I have to say - I actually don't feel like I've been off for the last 3 days! I am always hungry for extra time off, I guess ;-)

Today I want to share a "Zodiac" card with you... It's actually a card for name-day celebrations, but I thought that using the recipient's zodiac/star sign could add a bit of a twist to the card... Especially when taking into consideration that this particular recipient doesn't really celebrate his birthday... 

I turned the little Capricorn into a spinner card. If you follow me on YouTube, you would have seen my recent penny spinner/slider creations, and one of my hauls also showed the Mama Elephant Cosmic Stars stamp set. It's the first time I've used Mama Elephant stamps and I have to say - I am well impressed! The quality is fantastic! I think I'm gonna have to get some more...! The fact that their stamps are also super cute doesn't really help my wallet much here - you know I {heart} cute! 

Anyhow - moving on to the card:



As you can see, the card is rather clean and simple... A few sequins here and there (there are a few on the inside of the card, too --> I used flat ones for the inside), a bit of sparkle on the Capricorn... I printed the sentiment on the same patterned paper that I used for the background - made it stand out a little by distressing the edges. The most entertaining part of the card is, of course, the spinning bit!

Hope you like the little spinning Capricorn. I am entering him into the following challenges:


Have a great evening and rest of the week,

M.
