Thinking of you

Hello, everybody! Here is a card I made using a sketch from Card Positioning Systems. I've never really used card sketches, but have been eyeballing their sketches for awhile now. After seeing all the great sketches and what the fabulous designers do with them, I decided to take a shot at it. For this card, I used last week's sketch (number 172, which you can see here). I changed a couple of the elements up a little bit, but I think it still works for the sketch. This card measures 9 inches tall x 4 inches wide, and fits in a standard business size (A10) envelope.

Here's a close-up of the Versamark background. If you've never used Versamark, you should!'s a watermark ink, so it just makes a very subtle background, but it adds some visual interest without adding a distracting color. It's also very slow-drying, so it's great to use with embossing powders.

And here's a close-up of the cute little "hi" stamp. Oh the way...this stamp is the one I used with the Versamark for the yellow background. I love how the word "hi" didn't show up using the Versamark and made my little stamp that much more versatile. YAY!!! :)
Here are the deets (details...yes, I know I'm a : cardstocks are Bazzill, patterned paper is The Girls' Paperie, stamps are KI Memories, inks are Versamark (for creating the background on the yellow cardstock) and Staz-On Timber Brown, the dark blue strip was cut at the bottom using Nestabilities Labels 9 and embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, notebook border punch (sorry, don't know the real name) is EK Success, ribbon is Bazzill, hemp cord is Darice, corner rounder is We-R-Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, and the brown pen for the little accent dots is American Crafts.
Thanks for looking!
