AiFactory Challenge 5 and a POP UP FREEBIE!!

Sorry for the late post! I'm exhausted. I spent most of the day yesterday at Kaiser trying to figure out what is wrong with me. Turns out I have bronchitis. I'm still waiting to find out what my lab results turn up too.

This week's AiFactory challenge is so fun! The DT are featuring the adorable new faces of AiFactory, Alicia and Ivan. They are so cute and perfect for winter time cards. The challenge this week is to use AT LEAST three layers on your card and do something out of your comfort zone like a new techniq
ue or use an embellishment you don't normally use.

Here's my card. I used FIVE layers, that's a whole lot for me. :) I flipped Ivan in Photoshop for this card so that they would be facing each other. The designer paper is Sassafrass. The embellishment that I don't normally use is the chipboard sentiment. I added a pearl and some ribbon to finish off the card.

Check out THIS POST on the AiFactory Challenge blog for details on how to enter and for links to the DT! :)

BUT WAIT!! I also have the POP UP FREEBIE! :) It's the AWESOME vintage background. This is perfect for card making or scrap booking. If you would like to get your FREE background digi paper, join the Popup Freebies group on AiFactory's community. Then send a message to Mia (she's the leader of the group and AiFactory's amazing owner) telling her that you'd like the freebie. Use password: Vintage. :)
