Thought for the day -

I'm back with todays card post!  My card(s) today cover 2 challenges.  The 1st challenge is this weeks sketch challenge at Mojo Mondays.  They provided another wonderful sketch.



I chose square to go along with the theme for my notecard set.
My images are from Phindy's Place.  It is difficult to tell from this photo but I did a layer of glaze to give the images a glass looking sheen with clear embossing powder.  I attempted to do cracked glass but to no avail.  Yes it does make a difference what brand of embossing powder you use- Michaels was out of my normal brand so I picked up another. I did 4 coats and still could not get it to crack!  I noticed this powder was much finer than the other brand.  In person it looks very pretty though, with a glassy sheen.
The 2nd challenge I am participating in is this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge which was called a Matching Set. For my matching set I have made 4 gift cards and a card holder.
 

The giftbox hold 4 cards w/envelopes and can be made up in no time! Super fast, super easy and you can find the template at Stamp Tv.
Thanks for stopping by today and I will see you all tomorrow for another edition of Sunshine Mondays!
