Oooh, a two-fer!!!

Thanks to the fabulous challenge community,  I am presenting a card for two-two- two challenges in one!

I was just looking through challenges this morning and decided to jump in to my supplies... well, I'm such a dingbat that I combined the challenges in my head and only realized I was double-challenging when I was taking pix to post!  (That either makes me super-smart or, uh, super-challenged [haha]!)

Here are links to the two challenges:

... and here she is:


I went for a more shabby-vintage look on this card. The clear crackle paint totally curled and aged the graphic, and also it made the little side-banners look aged, like black leather. Of course I couldn't get a shot to do the card justice! Rrrr. I really tried to show that the third layer (the picture) was aged but that the first two layers did lay flat.  I popped the little banners up with dimensional tape then added a heart to one, then tucked a matching heart under the curled top corner. 

This card is already addressed to our local veterinarian office... They are SO good to us!
