Avery Elle | January Challenge

Hey there! Mark and I have been wrapping up the house before we close on Wednesday, but I wanted to pop in and share a card I created earlier this week for this month's Avery Elle AEI {Heart} U challenge.

The inspiration photo is adorable! I love the gray, black, and red color scheme and the striped socks. :-)

Here is my take:

 (Supplies - Stamps: (Avery Elle) Lots of Love, To the Point. Ink: (Papertrey Ink) Pure Poppy, (Ranger Archival Ink) Jet Black. Cardstock: (Avery Elle) Fog, New Moon, (Papertrey Ink) White. Gems: Hero Arts. Twine: Doodlebug.)

When I sketched out this card I originally wanted the gray panel to be embossed with a PTI texture plate, but I can't find my embossing mats... I must have packed them. I can't wait to get moved and get my new office set up! Only having access to a few of my supplies is driving me bonkers! I started out with one box of "do not pack" products, but that box turned into two boxes, then three, and I realize that I should have told Mark that my whole office is "do not pack". 

And yes, my card is resting on my big shot. Mark took apart our kitchen table last week and I don't have a lot of options for getting natural light for photographing cards. But the Big Shot works for now!

Have a wonderful weekend!
