Quick Congrats card

My friend Laurie got engaged a couple weeks ago, and I wanted to send her a quick card. Natasha's Fall-to Layout 51 (on the Clean & Simple blog) caught my eye, especially since I now have a Big Kick and the fabulous Top Note Die!

Ink: Old Olive and Melon Mambo (SU)
Paper: Stamper's Select White (Paper Trey Ink); Old Olive and Razzleberry Lemonade DSP (SU)

Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

The latest sketch on Stamping 411, the blog that my friend Robin contributes to, is totally CAS and right up my alley!

I modified their sketch a little bit by using 4 images instead of 3, and moving the sentiment a little. I also eliminated the outer layer, making my card just one layer.

This card is a combination of my two favorite stamp companies - Stampin' Up! and Paper Trey Ink. Happy days. :)

Stamps: Heart Prints (Paper Trey Ink); Friendship Blooms (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Raspberry Fizz and Ripe Avocado (PTI); Summer Sun and Tempting Turquoise (SU)
Paper: Stamper's Select White (PTI)
Other: Dimensionals (SU); Small Heart Punch (EK Success)
