Awesome Day

Our challenge this week at The Paper Players comes from LeAnne and she has a fabulous sketch for us.



I pulled out So 80's and some orange embossing powder for my card and worked from there.



I did a bit of clear-embossing on the card base to break up the black.  On the sentiment panel, I embossed the word "Awesome" first with Tangerine Tango EP, then the "Hope your day is" in white.  Over top of that, I clear embossed the pattern.

I die-cut some tags and threaded some grey twine through them before sticking them down onto the card.  The star stamp was clear-embossed and then cut out.




Thanks for visiting.  I'm linking this to the current challenge at Just Us Girls to use black, white and one other color. Check out how the rest of the design team have used this cool sketch.



Products used:

Stamps:  So 80's (WP9)
Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  Black, White, This n That Epic Day, Night & Day (SU)
Accessories:  Clear EP, White EP, Tangerine Tango EP, twine, Candy Dot, Tiny Tags die (SSS)

Cheers
Karren
