A Really Big Greeting!

Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #497 begins today, Tuesday, March 9, and ends on Sunday evening, March 21, 2021. This biweekly challenge is usually based on a required sketch with an optional theme except when we have a "Mix-Up" Challenge. This "Mix-Up" Challenge gives you the opportunity to choose either the sketch provided or the suggested theme. You may combine them as well, so that provides you with three choices. We hope you'll play along with us!

I elected to use the sketch and the theme together while keeping the card simple. I tilted the sketch onto its side for a landscape orientation rather than a portrait. The sentiment is so large, that I created an A6-sized card rather than the usual A2. Onto a white card base, I added the inverted scalloped frame with a yellow mottled background paper. Then I die-cut the floral paper to say, "hi". In keeping with the sketch, I added the background paper bands using the same floral paper. The inside of the card is decorated with additional coordinating paper with sufficient space to add a personal message.

We hope you'll join us at the TSOT497 Challenge Blog for the challenge fun!
