Love You Again, CTS46

Greetings on this terrific Tuesday! The rest of this week and weekend are going to be super busy for me. I have stampers at my house Wednesday and Friday, I'm having my good friend for dinner Friday night, too. Then, Saturday is my MIL's 90th birthday and we are having a big party for her at my BIL's house. Let's just say I'll be looking forward to Sunday! 

Today's card happened as a result of a mess on my desk. I'd made a card a couple weeks ago using the Expressions Thinlits, but I wanted to save the leftover pieces as I thought they may be useful someday. Then they happened to fall upon a scrap of this DSP. Eureka! I loved the way the tiny chevrons looked peeking through the frame and a card was born.

When I happened across the sketch at CAS(E) this sketch for this week, I knew I couldn't have a more perfect opportunity to use up my scraps. 

I used a Raspberry Ripple card base and covered it entirely in DSP, then covered that in white, letting just a little of the DSP peek out from behind. The "you" was selectively inked with a marker from one of the greetings in the Sweet Essentials stamp set. I had originally added then removed rhinestones, then a little heart, deciding that I liked the CAS look the best.

I really like this, Sandy. For most of these DSP stack patterns to "work", we really have to minimize them by using them in tiny whispers. You've done that well here. Nice card!

Gorgeous card, Sandy! I love it!
(And I love those diecut words, too-- they're fabulous!)
Thanks so much for playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch!
