Thank U

For the first time I participated in a challenge at Splitcoast. I've wanted to do that for such a long time, so today I just gave myself permission to play. :-)

The challenge was to case a card from the gallery of StarofMay . Many of you have probably visited her blog at Kwerner Design . I have her on Google Reader and check her new creations daily. Her style is very clean, crisp and uncluttered. I like that!

You can see the card I cased HERE .

The main image on my card is from a Hero Arts set called Letter Messages . I inked the word thank with Versafine Sepia ink, and the U was inked with VersaColor Cardinal ink. I then embossed using JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

I used a Coluzzle to cut out both the sentiment circle, and the red circle. Just for fun, I added a bead of Crystal Stickles around the edge of the red circle layer.

The yellow scalloped strip was made with my corner rounder punch. The designer paper is from Basic Grey, the lime grosgrain ribbon is from May arts.

This was soooooo much fun. I must do it again!

Thanks for stopping by. I have lots more for you this week, so stay tuned!
