Joke Card

Wow the weeks come around so quickly, must be my AGE LOL.  Talking of age, I have been using the Wrinkles Don't Hurt set of stamps for my CREATIVE EXPRESSIONS weekly DT piece. 
The idea behind this card was to create a joke card, similar to the ones you can purchase in the card shops.  I wanted the sentiments to really stand out so kept to the classy palette of black and white, shading only a few areas here and there.  The sentiments make such a great addition for humorous cards or notelets.
The only embellishments I have added are co-ordinated buttons and a circular bloom. 

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
