sweet thanks...

Hello friend!!   Hope all is well with you.   Have a really simple card to share for several challenges.  Yesterday I got happy mail in the form of new stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti.  One of the stamp sets I got is the fun and very trendy Donut You Know set.  Since the cue word at CASology is sweet I just had to make a card using the cute little donut die from the Donut You Know Confetti Cuts set.   I used the current Color Throwdown combo of teal, green, kraft and white and used the current layout from Freshly Made Sketches (I'm sharing the link to FMS, but not entering my card into the actual challenge).  I'm also going to post this too the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - make your background.  I went in a non-traditional direction to create my background by using an embossing folder and doing some partial embossing on the patterned paper panel.  I do realize that some may consider it a bit of a stretch, but when you emboss something you are creating a background.  After cutting all the donut pieces and layering the donut and "frosting"  I covered the "frosting with Glossy Accents and then sprinkled on the little heart and star shaped sprinkles.  Not the most original card out there, but I like the sweet simplicity of the layout and I think that donut looks good enough to eat, lol!!  You can't see the embossing in the main photo so I'm including a detail shot so you can see what it looks like.


 

Thanks so much for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white; PTI kraft; SU! Taken with Teal, Pear Pizzazz; Ink:  VersaFine Onyx Black; Stamps and dies:  Reverse Confetti; Patterned Paper:  Stampin Up!
