You put a song in my heart, card for SSD and CAS-ual Friday


This week I decided I would play along with the Skipping Stones Design challenge. The card also works for this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge which was a tribute to Operation Julie's Smile, an amazing blog hop to raise money for Julie Ranae.

I actually printed out the sentiment on the front of the card (the inside is stamped and says 'and a smile on my face'). This is the first time I've tried doing that, and it was easy and quick. I used Brenda Frerich's cloud technique on the paper with the sentiment (http://brendafrerichs.blogspot.com/2011_08_01_archive.html), and on the mat I just sponged a piece of white cardstock until I got the color I was looking for.

The tag was cut with the AP cartridge (2") in White Daisy and Kraft, using just the top and bottom of the tag as accent pieces for the tag. And I used my trusty Blending Pen to add a little depth to the birdie.

Hope you enjoy it. More Christmas cards tomorrow!

CTMH Supplies Used:
Stamps: Hot Diggity
