WSCC1 - Suzie Hospitality

Time for some fun! Since I had such a great weekend at my brother's house last weekend, I decided that a card was in order! AND, this Sassy Suzie sentiment was one I was DYING to use, because it's so funny - the inside of the card says "...I've decided to move in with you." tee hee! This card also serves as my entry for my own online group's first color challenge - blue and orange. I chose some softer versions of these two colors and was pretty happy with the combo over all. Here's the card:

Sets: Sassy Suzie, Priceless, Trimtastic
CS Colors: Soft Sky, Groovy Guava
Other: slit punch, 1/4" circle punch, silver brads, blender pens

How I did a few things:
1) Coloring - blender pen and puddle technique (squeeze the inkpad and using blender pen I pick up ink from the puddle in the lid of the inkpad).
2) brad washers - poke a hole in a scrap of cs and then using a 1/4" circle punch, line the hole up in the center and punch it out. Then put brad in.
3) edging - I stamped the trimtastic edge and then used paper snips to carefully cut the scalloped edge around the image.
4) notched corners - using slit punch (same punch I used to make the tab on the side of the sentiment), line the cardstock corner into the center of the punch and punch it out.

I think that covers it. Please let me know if you have any questions. Have a great day~

I really love the colors you picked for this! This was a fun challenge... and I love the use of brads and the scallop edge ... or did you cut that after stamping the scallop line? Either way - adorable! - lori #3
