>>> 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!'
