you're a knockout!

today i have a birthday card to share! i created it for the current fusion card challenge! obviously i used the colors from lesley's challenge and i was inspired by the sketch from jackie's challenge!

i used three paper smooches stamp sets - alphadot, sentiment sampler and hope.

i colored the boxing gloves with my inktense pencils and then used my heidi swapp (tinsel) color shine to add color to the star wood veeners! i sort of wanted the stars to emphasize the 'knockout' part of the card! :) 

the top border i created with washi strips and i used a brad and twine to 'hang' the boxing gloves! :) the gloves are also popped up for a little dimension.
i think this card is going to be perfect for my bff who's totally loving working out all the time right now! :)

so that's it!
enjoy! (and look! no sequins this time!) ha ha!
