Poker Night Layout

Hello everyone, today I am honored to be a guest designer for Liz from Liz's Paper Loft during her time of recovery from her surgery.  Liz is a fabulous designer and has had amazing guest designers over the last few weeks.  I am hoping I can live up to the standard set by Liz and her guest designers. Please remember to leave her some bloggy love and happy thoughts as she recovers.  If you are a regular visitor of my blog, you know that I love creating layouts to memorialize anything and everything.  I decided to create this two page 12x12 layout for my project today.
For this layout I used three different cartridges.  The stack of money and the poker chips were cut from the Father's Day seasonal cartridge at 4.0 inches.  I used Indie Art for the suits cut at 2.5 inches and the tag cut at 4.0 inches.  Black Letter was used for the title which was cut at 2.0 inches.
The die cuts were all popped up on foam dots for added dimension against the patterned background.  I also used my white gel pen to add some doodling to the die cuts and the photo mats.
I created this fun tag using the Game Night stamp set from My Creative Time which just happens to be Emma's favorite stamp of the month.  I stamped the sentiment on the tag in black ink.  Next, I stamped the cards separately in red ink and cut them out and added them to the tag.  I finished off the tag by using some coordinating twine.
I would like to thank Liz for inviting me to be a guest designer and all of you for visiting and supporting my blog.  

Liz has some exciting news to share with you, but not quite yet. However, in the meantime, while she's recovering, she is reading every comment!  Not only is she reading them, she's counting them, because at the end of all this, she will have two announcements!  The first will be a winner of some exciting BLOG CANDY!  The second, it's a big one...and no, she's not coming out with just have to wait and see!
