I am so excited to share the card I made for Randy's grandma Avis who just turned 80. We just got to see her right after Christmas and she is quite a doll! I only hope I have as much energy when I turn 80.
This is a fun card and it was just as much fun to make. It has a black base that I embossed with irrodecent embossing powder. I wanted it to look like a fun stary night. This was made with the Finally Friday challenge in mind as well, which was to use black on the card. I know it isn't a normal way to use it, but it I think it turned out fun.

The ice berg that our hippo is on is also all kinds of sparkly. Thank goodness we can be creative in a card, because I am really not that sure when a hippo would ever be on an ice berg, but he is now LOL! I also loved the floss detail on the balloons. It really added a neat element.

It's a good life!
