Cards in Envy Challenge -Hip To Be Square!

For this Cards in Envy Challenge I used one of the Creative Chemistry techniques, Luminous Mica, using Distress Ink and Distress Mica to create this gorgeous rainbow background.   WOW, does this give some dynamic results.

Remember, at Cards in Envy we ask that you make your card fit into a standard A2 card though, we have loosened up our requirements and no longer require a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card as long as it fits in the A2 Envy.

The colors I used with this card are Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Ripe Persimmon, Frayed Burlap, Candy Apple Red, and Mustard Seed.  My background stamp is an older Club Scrap wood mounted and my sentiment and candles are from “Wish Big” by Ellen Hutson.

I hope you will join us at Cards in Envy this week and show us some “Hip To Be Square” cards!  The challenge will run through Sunday, August 29th.
