Hooray for today ~ with CTS#74 and HSS#185

Good evening, yes, today you are getting to catch my blog twice, and what better way than for a creation inspired by two challenges.  The sketch covers Cas(e) This Sketch and the color scheme covers Hand Stamped Sentiments, both of which are awesome!  You should go play along too!

The sketch is simple, which I loved cause its something I struggle with and am trying to improve on and get better with.  Why?  Cause I just love layers!  If you look closely, I do have an added layer of coastal cabana behind the stamped top layer. Tee Hee!!  I just can't resist...I LOVE PAPER!!
I used the Geometrical stamp set to stamp in colors of baked brown sugar, tangerine tango and coastal cabana, to scatter around the top of the card to go work with the sketch.  As a background stamp, I used Off the Grid (boo hoo!, so sad to see it go!)  I also to stamped two triangles in T. tango and punched out with coordinating punch and placed on top the two stamped ones with a foam dot for a little 3-D look.  I added some candy dots to my sentiment and scattered around a few gold sequins.  The gold bakers twine crisscrossed at the bottom just ties everything together.

Of course, I'm showing the inside...its just as important as the outside!  Although, now that I look at this, it would be pretty for a front too, with some added sequins and twine!!  Whatcha thing?!
Supplies Used
Cardstock ~ whisper white, tangerine tango and coastal cabana
Ink ~ baked brown sugar, tangerine tango and coastal cabana
Stamp Set ~ Geometrical, Off the Grid
Misc. ~ triangle punch, gold bakers twine and gold sequin trim
As always, I hope you have enjoyed my take on the two challenges.  Don't forget to leave some "love"!  Be sure you stop by tomorrow, it's our monthly blog hop with Stylin' Stampin' Squad!!
