"Apertures"

This week at House Mouse &Friends, our Teamie Heather is hosting and she chose:
 Apertures - also known as a openings on projects.
Stamps: Stampabilities, House Mouse Designs, from 2008, called "Smarty Pants", featuring Amanda, #HMJR1078. The verse/sentiment is also by Stampabilities, called "Everything I know", #NR1023. The frame has ribbon around both edges, a bow and behind sentiment sides on bottom. School themed brads and tiny rhinestones finish off this card. :)

AND just to make sure I did this "Aperture" thing correctly, I made a 2nd card with an actual Circle Center hole created with the negatives of Spellbinders Circle Cuts, layered & placed descending to reveal the HM image at bottom. I also added pierced holes around the edges of the card (just in case my center didnt count as an aperture) LOL.
Stamps: Stampabilities, House Mouse Designs, from 2008, called "Spooktacular Flower", featuring monica, #HMF1019. The verse/sentiment is also by Stampabilities, called "Spook-Tacular", #QR1033.

Oh America - I'm so sorry you ended up having to do two cards to make sure you had an aperture (giggle, giggle) and they are both so fabulous. Plenty of holes on them Fabulous colouring but have to say the second one is my favourite it is spectacular so I'm glad you did two.The colours, colouring, papers and your details are just stunning!!

I love all your cards. This card was actually my inspiration for my Christmas Cards. I have a question. What type of paper do you use when using your copic markers? Thank You!
