My husband’s birthday was last week and chess-themed cards are always a favorite item on the menu . . .
. . . Despite some memory issues, Igor is still a demon chess player and he rarely loses a game. So the King image is certainly appropriate here! The background is a scrap from another project that was put through one of Quickutz’ newer embossing folders from a set called “Woven”. I’ll be using this one a lot . . .
Cardstock: Bazzill Jacaranda*, Beckett Iceberg

* Whoever named this cardstock color “Jacaranda” ought to have done a little preliminary research first. Jacaranda trees are actually a truly lovely shade of purple.
