Don't Worry Be Happy

First thing first, I am so happy that Dana, who was the host for the "Get more from your patterned paper" challenge at Yvonne's blog has picked my card to be the winner. I am so glad :D

Next, I am sharing a card for Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge#43 - Live, Laugh, Love. I thought the image from the Flourishes set Kids Play was a perfect fit. I am using the sketch over at Limelight Papercrafts with a focus on string and the colors of ColorQ #72 



Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Flourishes (Kids Play); ink: ColorBox Pigment Ink;
String and Ribbon from Stash;

I played a whole new technique called grid technique here. The basic idea is to create a grid by scoring lines and then stamping a image on the raised side. Silhouette images work best for this technique. I also distressed the edges so as to make the grid more prominent.  



Hope you like it!! Thanks for visiting!!
