Good Luck card

Hello everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and finding some time to craft a card or two. I just had time to make a card before my daughter comes round for dinner and I'd like to share it with you. I wanted to play along with the current Addicted to CAS challenge because the code word this time is Luck and I needed to make a good luck card.

You may remember that I made a green card recently for a good friends' birthday, and this friend has a lovely husband who is about to run in a marathon for charity. He has had some health problems of late, but has trained hard, and feels able to step up for the challenge. I do admire sporty people but I have to confess to not being one and I don't suppose I ever will be. I used to play a little tennis and badminton in my younger days but now I prefer to watch tennis and cheer on those who are willing to put in the hard work!

I used one of the Border1 dies from Paper Smooches to go across the card on top of a panel cut with a Stitched Rectangle die from Lil'Inker Designs. The running man is a stamp from Personal Impressions, and after stamping him, I cut him out. I raised most of him on pop dots so he would have a shadow around him but I stuck his foot down onto the panel, and I think it helps to create the illusion of him actually running off the page. I also cut a little panel and stamped his running number on to stick to his chest.

A sentiment, a mat and a bit of grounding finished it off.

As I've used a Paper Smooches die, and Shadows oval stamp, I'd like to play along for the first time with the

Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge which is anything goes.

I'd also like to enter this into the Addicted to Stamps

                                              Addicted to Stamps and More!

challenge which is anything goes this week.
