CAS Thinking of You

I haven't posted in a while. It has been a busy time, but I have also been struggling with creating anything lately. So, to break that streak I am starting out with a simple card today. I created this card for the 'Less is More' colour challenge this week, which is to use 3 adjacent colours on the colour wheel. They are celebrating their 6th birthday - CONGRATULATIONS! - so I thought I would join in the fun.

 My card design was inspired by sketch #208 at CAS(E) this Sketch!

I stamped a panel with the stamp set Doodlie-Do and VersaMark ink, then heat embossed with clear. I sponged on three colours of Ranger distress ink and then die cut the panel with a Stitched Rectangle Die from Lil Inkers. The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink and then heat embossed with clear. I popped the panel up with foam and left the card clean and simple and flat for mailing.

Stamps - Doodlie-Do (PTI), Mountain View (Flourishes)
Dies - Stitched Rectangles (Lil Inkers), Building Blocks (PTI)
Paper - Stampers Select White CS (PTI)
Ink - Versa Fine - Onyx Black, VersaMark Clear EP (Ranger), Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass & Wilted Violet Distress Inks (Ranger)
Other - Foam

Thanks for looking!
