Super Thanks

Hi!  Today's card was made using the colors from Color Throwdown, the sketch at MFT Stamps and the Hero theme at CASology.


I stamped and colored the girl using Copics and the CTD colors before die-cutting her with the matching die.  I colored all the orange elements with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen and set her aside.

For the frame as per the sketch, I die-cut two pierced rectangle frames - one in black and one in Hawaiian Shores and adhered them together offsetting the aqua one slightly.  As well as providing some added interest, this also beefs up the size of the frame to more match the sketch.

Finally the sentiment was white embossed and cut out.  The top left corner was rounded with a Corner Chomper.  The girl was adhered with foam tape and my card was done.


Thanks so much for visiting.  I really appreciate the time you take to visit me here.







Cheers
Karren
