Take Every Chance

Happy Monday!!!  Today is my day to post over at Pink by Design, and I have a card to share with you that was so fun to make!  Here it is:

I wanted to create a non-frilly card to go along with this sentiment from the Pink by Design August 2012 Stamp of the Month: Illuminate.  Here's how I made the card:

I created this card using a 4x6 arrows card that I found in the Silhouette Online Store.  I think it was intended to be used with Project Life, but I think it makes a great starting place for a card. I made 2 different sizes of shadows using the offset feature (the white shadow and the kraft shadow.  Then, I mirrored the larger kraft shadow to create the card base.  I also made a copy of the rounded rectangle part of the arrows card and cut it out of the white cardstock I use for my Copics.  Then, I used a bunch of different colors of Copics to create this blended spectrum background.  I love how it turned out, and I love what my Copics can do!!!  Then, I popped up arrows with foam tape to create a little dimension.  I stamped the sentiment on a chipboard shape, added some doodle lines, and my card was all done!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'll have lots of new files to share with you on Wednesday, plus I have a fun announcement to make!  I'll hope you come by! :)
