Birthdays Are Like Zombies

I can't believe it's been two weeks since I posted a card here on my blog. I was training for a 5K with a friend and have been hitting the gym in the evenings to work on speed work on the treadmill. It worked...I shaved a whole minute off of my per mile time and came in first in my age group! I did it in 25.21 minutes.
 Anyway, all of that speed training left me lacking in the creative mojo department. I don't have another race for a month so am hoping to get a few cards created before then. 

Today's card was created for the latest Just Us Girls challenge. I started with a plain white card base and layered some funky geometric patterned paper from the Little Yellow Bicycle Fern & Forest 6x6 patterned paper pad on top. I then stamped the sentiment and zombie image from the Sugar Pea Undying Love stamp set onto some white Copic-friendly paper. I then die cut the image out using a Gina Marie stitched rectangle die. I mounted it onto some coordinating patterned paper from the same paper pad and then colored the image in using my alcohol markers. I popped the focal panel up off of the card using some 3M foam tape and angled it for some added interest. I hope you like this fun little card and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog!
