Our theme was "Hidden Object".
So, I'm not very good at making cards yet...so I thought I would use this opportunity to practice. I chose to use Smeared Ink's "Slave" Angel from "The Symbology of Angels" set. You can see this set and the other wonderful Smeared Ink stamps here (click).
I chose to keep the outside of my card pretty clean looking. I used black card stock and cut out the rib cage with my Xacto-knife. Then I colored in some bones with my white gel pen. I clipped the sentiment, "dream come true", out of an old velum pad. I can't remember where I got it, but the entire pad is quotes/poems about love. Pretty neat. I glued that to the card and then attached my black skull charms with some crazy yarn and hot glue. On the inside of the rib cage I glued another piece of the love velum tablet....I guess this can count for part of my "hidden object" theme. If you look hard enough you can see through the rib cage and velum and see hints of what lies inside.

For the inside of my card I cut a moon out of my Spectrum pad, ripped some paper for the background, colored my Angel and distressed them all. As a finishing touch for the Angel I sprayed some Silver Glitter Spray on his wings. I cut another sentiment from my Spectrum pad that reads "For a dreamer, night's the only time of day.", i distressed it, traced over the words with my purple marker, and then glued it all together. The Angel is chained to the moon....I was going for a "slave of the night" type feel. Hope you got it!! LOL.

Even though I waited until the absolute last moment to create this card, I'm pleased with the way it came out. I would love to hear your thoughts!
