"paint" splatter. When I feel that way it's often easiest for me to make my first card CASEing almost exactly.
To make it my own I added some layers and a splash of color with some sequins I got from Pretty Pink Posh and my local craft store. The ink colors I used were Pool Party and Bermuda. After I got my copying out of my system I decided to play with the concept and switch it up just a tad while incorporating the Dynamic Duo Challenge to use aqua and pink.
It's softer than the Thank You card, but I still like it. I added more sequins from Pretty Pink Posh on my card and had the stars shooting across the card. I love the added bit of sparkle that sequins add to a card, but I'm still not sure how to place them. Time for me to look closer at what other people are doing and CASE away until I find my own style.
What I love about this card is the Chevron background I created with my stamps and that the greeting is recessed instead of popped up.
