Background Check – Homework!

Well this week certainly hasn’t turned out as planned! On Friday we were due to fly out to Lisbon for our family holiday, but unfortunately my husband was taken ill & we had to cancel 36 hours before we were due to fly. To say I was gutted would be a huge understatement, as I’d also planned a 16th birthday surprise for our son who would have celebrated his birthday out there. Instead we’re stuck at home and my poor husband is still ill, being looked after by Nurse Helen!

To stop myself moping around I decided to sign up for the online card class “Background Check”, and this card is my first finished “homework”:

Card pictureIt’s to congratulate our nephew who has just got a promotion at work. The inks I’ve used are Hero Arts Neon, and the background die (stamped with Versamark) is a border one by Kaisercraft called Checker Plate.  The “To You” is by Anna Marie Designs, stamped in black Stazon. The word die is by Clearly Besotted and it’s inlaid into the card, into which a star has been diecut then the gap filled with acetate. I hope you can see that better in the picture below:

Close up of cardI’ve just realised this qualifies for this month’s challenge over at Stamping Sensations where the theme is Anything Goes and you must use a stamp and a die.
