Thanks on an Angle

Sunday, November 16, 2014

This may be the smallest card I ever created.  The back story is that I really wanted to make a card for the CAS(E) This Sketch 100th challenge.  A milestone like that doesn't come around every day so I wanted to be a part of it.  I literally spent a couple of days mentally going over things in my stash that I could use on my card and was coming up empty.  Then the mailman delivered some new things for my stash and one of the new things was a stencil that I thought would be perfect.

The stencil is only 3 1/2 inches across at its widest angle so I sized my card to fit.  I carefully masked off parts of the stencil as I sponged Baja Breeze, Island Indigo and Pumpkin Pie over it (so that I could play along with the Color Throwdown challenge.  Then I began a search for a small sentiment.  I chose this "thanks" die cut but it's a bit bigger than I would like.  To balance it out I threw on a few sequins.  Voila!

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper:  Pumpkin Pie (SU); Soft Stone (Papertrey Ink)
Ink:  Baja Breeze, Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie (SU)
Accessories:  Urban Insiders Square stencil (Stencil Girl); Thanks die (Simon Says Stamp), sequins
