Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Sassy Salutations Birthday Card


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

Isn't this a cool sketch? The possibilities are endless and the best bit is....you get to use up those skinny scraps!!!

I used strips of Cucumber Crush, Real Red and Crushed Curry and stamped a greeting from Sassy Salutations onto Whisper White card stock. I then cut this with an Oval Framelit in the Big Shot.

Here is our cool sketch...

The colours came from the inspiring colour palette at The Paper Players this week. :)
