You're the Best



Hi all! Here's a card I made for today's Color Throwdown (had to use Night of Navy instead of Not Quite Navy) and Sketch Challenge 270 on SCS. The navy panel behind the sentiment is up on foam tape and so is the largest white panel that's on the card base. The Vintage Swirls were stamped on olive, navy, and ruby in white craft ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The large sentiment is from OCL's Big Thanks set.

Have a great day!
