Thank You {CTS #106)

Happy Friday!! I managed to squeak out another card for you this week since I wanted to use this fun layout from CAS(E) this Sketch. I'm too late to post for the challenge, but that's okay - it's how I roll most of the time - a day late and a dollar short. Or lots of dollars short ;)

This sketch was quite the challenge and I think I stamped the stripes about 5 different times, scrapping the paper, before settling for this outcome - but it was fun to do, all the same. I like to be pulled out of my comfort zone sometimes. I used the stripe trio image from Ombre Builders by Papertrey Ink, and stamped them in various rainbow colors. I do really like the way the ink overlaps and blends. I sort of cheated with the sentiment and stamped it horizontally instead of on the diagonal like the sketch says to do. I'm already out of my comfort zone, so let's not get too crazy! Am I right? Ha!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

recipe -
