Best of luck...

Hi! Three of my friends have daughters who will be appearing for the 12th exams this month. So I have been busy making cards to wish them luck.

The first card is based on the Seize the Sketch #14.

My take is this

I used the colour palette from the ColorQ Challenge #230

I have been quite obsessed with subway art of late. I found a very nice word art freebie at Luckeyfrogs Lilypad which I processed and printed out. I decided to combine the word art with chalkboard style card, which is first for me. So I am also entering it into the Lulupu Challenge #26 - try something new.

I also added a small four leaf clover charm. Since I did not have a thick foil, I simply folded the regular thin foil few times and then punched out the shape.

I am also entering this card in the Less is More Week 160 - Metal.

That's all from for now. Will be back soon with the second card.
