I went sorta CAS for today’s card. I stamped the chevron background from LJD Spring Backgrounds on Kraft card stock with Versamark ink to begin. On a Sweet Tooth card stock panel, I stamped the small arrows from LLD Document It – Right On Target in the challenge colors. I stamped the sentiment, from the same set with Black Licorice ink and tied around some hemp cord. I popped the panel up on foam and added some star sequins as accent.

For the inside, I simply stamped another sentiment from the set:


And that’s it! Be sure to check out the Color Throwdown blog to see who’s playing with us today—the design team has recruited some help to celebrate and you won’t want to miss a thing!
