Scratch Magic Inspiration

Inspiration can come from unexpected places.  This card came out of an activity packet received at Christmas time called "Scratch Magic".  It contained several sheets of special media covered in either black or white "stuff" that is scratched away to reveal colors below.  At first I just play with the plain stencils that come in the packet.  Then I realize that using my more detailed stencils might create something interesting.  I give it a try, and this focal was born, making for a quick card.

The packet also contains a similar piece of material that is translucent.  From that, I get THIS card.

It looks a bit dark when the card is closed, but when it is opened, the light shines through and it looks a bit like a stained glass window.  So, this little packet that I thought was just an "activity" kit, turns into something fun for making cards.
