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.
