Thursday with Lindsay

Good Morning everyone! I hope your week is going well. Mine has been pretty OK, very low key. I did have a job interview yesterday that I think went well. I'm praying...

Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is sponsoring my challenge blog this week - which is always so exciting! Lindsay carries some awesome digi-stamps and now SVGs!


My card is very clean and simple - the sketch holds so much possibility, but CAS was my choice. My card is all digital, pretty much. The base is Kraft card stock, something I don't use nearly enough. The next layer is a digital paper that I got from A Cherry on Top. The paper pack is called Iced Latte. I sized the paper, after importing in it into a word document, to be 4 x 5 1/4 inches. Then I drew a text box over the paper to add my sentiment. The swirly paper on the top is from that same digi-paper pack. The image I used is from Coffee Talk. You can't tell in this picture, but the bottom piece is Chocolate Chip card stock that I embossed with the Swirls CB folder. Then I added some pearls. I did color the image with Copics.

Be sure to visit Lindsay and the rest of the team. And don't forget, Lindsay's always got a sale! Spend $5 and get a digi free. And head on over to my challenge blog to play along! Thanks for stopping by!
