Sending You A Smile

Hello Friends ...

Every once in awhile, you just need to make and send a card that let's people know you're still there thinking about them!  Today's card, I think, fit's the bill perfectly!  What do you think??

That is what I had on my mind when creating today's card and the SHAPE challenge over on the Addicted to CAS Challenge Blog gave me and idea for the perfect design layout.



 Products used on today's card are:

Clear Scraps Stars 6x6 Mask Stencil

 Stars 6 x 6 Mask Stencil - Clear Scraps

 Tutti Designs Nesting Stars

 TUTTI-215 Nesting Stitched Stars

 Altenew Halftone Smile Stamp Set

Altenew Halftone Smile Stamps

I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks to color the stars on my stencil as well as the outer edge of my star die cut.  A blue Prisma pencil was used to color in the word SMILE on the inside of my card.  The arrow on the front focus star was hand drawn.

  Challenges to share in:
A Place To Start March Challenge - Pick a Shape
Aud Sentiments Challenge #270 - Show Us the Sentiment on the Inside
Make it Monday Challenge #144 - Clean & Simple

  As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!
