You Deserve A Hand!

I think YOU deserve a Hand! LOL
Cardbase is white cardstock from Wal-mart cut into A2 size card ( 5 1/2" x 4 1/4").  I bought a 2-pack of playing cards from the Dollar Tree, so I don't feel bad about using the cards on a card since they were 50 cents a pack.  *Black gem rhinestones brads from stash.  Sentiment printed from computer using font "Atriste 2" @ 20 pts. Background papers from K&C "Best Of" stack. Everything inked around the edges with brown ink from ColorBox.  I plan on sending out a couple of cards like this to some special friends who I think 'DESERVE A HAND'. I hope it will make them smile.  This card idea came from PaperCrafts magazine July / August issue, page 25, Designer: Kim Kesti.
Come play with us over at PAPER PLAYTIME where the challenge theme right now is ANYTHING GOES!
