Sale-a-bration for GDP 127 and CAS 261

We have entered the last month of Sale-a-bration and I expect you're going to be seeing a lot of Sale-a-bration items used on this blog.  I find myself drawn to them as I find time to create.  Today, I chose the Epic Celebrations Stamp Set and was inspired by items in my own life.  I used the masking technique to feature both the sneakers and headphones on the same area of the sketch.

I felt like Lemon Lime Twist was a perfect color for this card base.  Ever since I saw it revealed as one of the 2017-2019 In Colors, it has reminded me of my teenage years in the '80s.  So, does the Epic Celebration stamp set.  I chose to use the Stampin' Blends to color in the sneakers to match my favorite pair during high school.  I even have my purple shoes on in my Senior pictures.  Of course, mine were high tops, but you can't have everything.  Headphones have also been a huge part of my life as they allow me to listen to whatever music I want without having to deal with the differing musical tastes of my family.  What's especially awesome to me is that this style of sneakers and headphones are currently laying around my house, property of my teenager.  I guess that's proof that fashion is a cycle and everything comes around eventually.  :)

I made this into a thank you card.  I want to challenge you to look around the house and see how many of your stamp sets would make great thank you cards.  I'll bet you have more than you realize.

I was inspired by the theme from GDP127 and the sketch from CAS 261.  Make sure you head over to the challenges to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries.
