World of Dreams, STS23


Greetings, Stampers! I guess time flies when you are having fun, because I can't believe two weeks have passed already and it's time for another challenge at Seize the Sketch! This great layout was designed by the wonderful and talented Lee Ann Barrett.


I chose to keep this card simple, and feature an image and greeting from the World of Dreams Stamp Set. I used markers to ink up the image and the sentiment, as well. I used only half the sentiment for the front of the card, and the other half on the inside. 


Here is the second half of the sentiment inside. I used the same image as for the front of my card without re-inking, and simply "huffed" on it to moisten it up a bit and stamp a lighter image. I like that you can see the intire image on the inside, as part of it is covered up on the front of the card.

I like that you have the same image on both the outside and again on the inside. It pulls the entire card together.

This is beautiful Sandy. The Hello Honey and Basic Black colors make the oval image layer just jump off the front of the card. And I love that you used the exact same image on the inside. Genius!

Sandy, this is fabulous! I love the inside especially - such a clever way to finish off this beauty :) And honestly, wouldn't you just about cry if someone gave you a card that said this? :D
