Spread Your Wings

I have a couple of goals for crafting this year... one of them is to use more of my barely used/uninked stamps, one is to use more of my dp stash & another one is to mail out more cards.  This card was made with a specific person in mind, so I don't plan on it sitting around too long.  I haven't used the sentiment stamp set at all & I used some dp.

Stamps: Crazy Birds sentiment by Dylusions
c/s: white, blue
copics, circle nestablilies, wink of Stella glitter pen

CAS359 White on White

This week's CAS challenge on SCS is ~ White on White.  When I started making my card, I knew I was sending it to a specific person, so I went with a sentiment that works.  I don't have too many small sentiments that fit in that oval punch.  I wanted to add something to it, but just didn't know what.  I was afraid I wouldn't like what I added & then instead of writing on the inside of the card & getting it mailed, I would just keep messing with it or give up altogether.  My Mom & Dad stopped in for a few minutes & they both said to leave it.

Stamps: Small Phrases Verve
swirls ef, oval punch

Until next time!
