My Handle Broke

This card was made for Less Is More challenge #51: Cut it Out and Passion for ProMarkers challenge #132: Humour.

I was still watching challenge blogs earlier in the week even though I was too busy staying as still as possible after my fall, to craft (I'm clearly a glutton for punishment, looking at them just made me want to get up and do them!) and when I saw the Passion for Promarkers challenge my first thought was 'does sarcasm count?' because that's pretty much my mainstay... luckily, unlike a lot of my cards lately which haven't been made with any special person in mind - I know exactly where this one is going! - and the Born to Shop stamp I eventually decided on couldn't have been a more perfect choice for the person in question!

Then the Less is More challenge came up and gave me an excuse (as if I needed one) to use my nesties to create an aperture - I've been wanting to try this since I got them so it was a great chance to do so! I also used my nesties to create a scalloped frame for my aperture just to make it stand out a little more.

The image is coloured with promarkers Amber, Mustard, Buttercup and Blush - and I added a few gems to give it a little extra sparkle.
