The Future's So Bright...



I got an order from Sweet Stamp Shop this week.  Their images are hand drawn, simple and fun.  Their customer service is wonderful.  Shipment was super fast and there was a hand written note on the packing slip!  I just love that.  One of the sets that I got was Spectacle.  When I saw this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge - Name That Tune, my song of inspiration popped right into my head: The Future's So Bright I Gotta Wear Shades by Timbuck 3. Ah those 80's!   I ran across Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge, which I had not seen before.  I used it for my layout, and this card is the result of all of this combined inspiration.  The sentiment is computer generated, and I got perfect placement on the die cut by using yet another technique I learned on PTI's Make It Monday tutorial HERE.  I had lots of fun with this one.

Supplies:
Paper~Summer Sun, Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety.
Stamps~Sweet Stamp Shop Spectacle.
Ink~VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black.
Accessories~Nestabilities, Dimensionals, Self Adhesive Rhinestones, black embossing powder, Cuttlebug EF, PTI Double Ended Banners die.


Thank you so much for coming by and thank you always for your lovely comments and feedback.
