So... it was Fancy Pants Pollen Dust to the rescue. This was a super fast card, made to fit in a standard business size envelope (perfect for a check, right?). The colors were not inspired by Zack's school (as that would have taken a few minutes research), but the paper on my work desk. At least they "go".
The card base was white, layered on black and green galore. The swirls and sentiment were stamped in Palette Hybrid Noir ink. One simple embellishment of black grosgrain ribbon under the sentiment... that's all.I don't think he minded a quick card. What do you think? Did it work?
Thanks for looking,
p.s. Not to tease (since a good girl wouldn't, right)... but I have my big project to post soon... promise... ;-)
