I almost stood on my head

....to take a photo of this card so that the score lines top and bottom showed up :)

It's for Less Is More's Weekly Challenge - Week 72, and this week the girls want us to show 'Something Shiny'. A bit spoilt for choice as I love all things sparkly and shiny:
Due to the acrobatics here, the card looks a bit distorted but I promise it's a true oblong :)

I used:

- 5" x 7" cream card stock - much more creamy in real life than in the photo

- a little silver 'teddy with red gem heart' topper, found during my sort out of goodies here

- scalloped Nestie cut from red sort of 'muted' mirri card behind the topper

- red KanBan gems from the gems store here

- score lines top and bottom

Taking the photo whilst doing handstands was a lot more tricky than making the card I can assure you!

It's an adorable card and perfect for LIM!

(Are you still dizzy? You need to watch out doing all those Acro Bats. You know you could possibly hurt the camera and then where would you be?)

KatzElbows said...

So if you were doing a handstand, that means you were operating the camera with your feet? Very cool!

And the card is so cool, too.

cheers, rachel #51 on the linky thing
