Happy Wishes

Julia is challenging everyone to use staples today for the Ways To Use It challenge at SCS. This is what I came up with. My top corner piece was created by cutting off the bottom of the SU tag punch. It makes the perfect angles. I stamped the image with Adirondack Salmon dye ink, and colored the stems with a SU Always Artichoke marker. I then sponged around all the edges with SU Groovy Guava and gave some dimension to the card by raising each panel with Scotch dimensional tape.

The stamp images can be found at Stamper's Dream.
Be sure to check out all of her new Penny Black and Hero Arts stamps!! She also got in some more liquid pearls, and those are awesome for amping up a card a bit!!

YUP! THIS is without a doubt, a "Tosh" card!!! Amazingly clever design elements (love just the two corners punched!!!), very creative layout (you should design sketches for a living!!!), and gorgeous embellishments!! You always know how to add "just the right amount" of stuff! This card really is just beautiful!!

This is just so beautiful, Tosha. How did you get those staples on there so perfect and straight. Mine are always off by just a little bit... Fabulous job on this.
