FMS143 -- Bravo!

I was intrigued by the sketch for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  It looked like something I could play with and I was right.  It also allowed me to play with that adorable new framelit, the Moustache.  I ask you:  who can resist moustaches?
I decided to make my circle by stamping it.  The Kinda Eclectic stamp set was perfect for that job.  I used Hello Honey ink and already it looked like a celebration.  Then for the bottom banner, I decided to use one of the stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  Heat embossed with Silver Embossing powder, it looked great against the bottom of the circular sun-shape.  

I used the large Oval Punch and cut two ovals from Basic Black and then free-handed the top of the Top Hat.  I also free-handed a piece of the new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper for the hat's band.  I used Tombo glue to adhere those pieces directly onto the sun-shape but then use Dimensionals to adhere the Melon Mambo moustache across the brim.  A final banner of Silver Foil heat embossed with "bravo" in Black Embossing powder finished off the bottom.

I thought the card needed some extra "oomph" and added three Silver Foil stars at the top right.  


And that's my entry for the challenge.  To see more of the cards entered into this challenge, go over to Freshly Made Sketches.

  4. I am one of those people who resists the moustaches. I just don't get that fad at all. I do, however, really like your card and think it is both great and unique. Good job!!
