>>> 365 Cards Day 87 & 88 & Mojo Monday Wk 88 <<<

Created a card that combined 2 challenges, 365 Cards Day 88 and Mojo Monday Week 88. Sheesh, isn't it coincidental that both are 88? The Chinese believe that the number 8 is a lucky number and having it double.... double the luck!

365 Cards Day 88 is 'Quite A Pair'. The challenge is to design either an anniversary or an engagement congrats card but no wedding card! Now doesn't the double 8 resemble a pair??? Another sheer coincidence? :)

Mojo Monday week 88 is based on a sketch:Looking at the sketch, don't you see a pair of rectangles? Gosh, so spooky! :)

Without further ado, here's my card for both challenges. Believe me, before spotting all these coincidences, my aim was merely to kill 2 birds with one stone. Now putting them down into words kinda opened my eyes a wee bit :

This is an Engagement Congrats card.
Patterned papers by WRMK Boho Chic collection. Stamped image by Label Tulip and sentiment by Purple Onion Designs.


******************************

Here's is 365 Cards Day 87 challenge which is entitled 'The "Eyes" have it'. Strange challenge but one is required to have the word 'eye' on the card! Got me stumped for a while and pondered the whole day until just before I was about to go to bed, it suddenly occured to me! I had this perfect image for an eye candy!!! Obviously as dawn was about to break, I had no choice but to go to bed and did it this morning:

Well, a brightly cheerful image requires a brightly patterned paper, from American Craft Teen collection. Stamped image by Unity, coloured using Promarkers. The sentiments reads 'What an eye candy!'

TTFN!
