Pamper Yourself with a Card Giveaway!

Happy hump day! Today is card giveaway day so if you'd like to win today's card along with an envelope (soyou can mail it to someone if you want) just leave a comment on this post and tomorrow I'll have random.org pick a winner. How simple is that?
The card I have made uses a Squigglefly image called Long Day


(click to enlarge)

I'm sure we've all had days like this! I remember how much my feet would ache after working an eight hour shift as a waitress. Soaking my feet would do wonders!

I colored this with these copic markers



I cut around the image from the floor line up and then placed it on some designer paper that I thought was a good paper to look like wallpaper. I used one the labels nestabilites die to cut the whole image out and then another larger one out of some rust colored cardstock that I then embossed with the textile embossing folder. I used my computer to print the words out on some different designer paper and attached some brads in two corners. I hope you like it enough to want it, and if you do, don't forget to comment!

Have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks for looking!
