Little Card Big Thanks


Happy Tuesday my friends.  I'm popping in to share two cards for the current CASE this Sketch.  The first card was inspired by Laura Bassen in the Online Card Class.  She was showing us how to make fun backgrounds without having stamps.  I used masking paper and my distress inks. It started as one layer, but I had quite a big smudge so I had to cut it out and mount it before applying it to the card...woops!


My second card is super CAS using the beautiful stamps that Karen Baker had designed for The Craft's Meow.  I love her stamps and miss that she isn't designing for anyone right now! 

I hope you are all getting in plenty of inky time!

Both cards fit perfectly with the sketch, Lynn. One bold and bright, one soft and elegant. It just shows your versatility.
