Miss Your Face

 This card was so much fun for me to make today.  I started with the theme inspiration from Paper Players this week.  I wanted to use a pun for my humorous card and began looking through my stamps for inspiration.  When I saw the Hand Delivered stamp set, I couldn't help but thinking "I miss your face." since the entire stamp set carries objects that hide the girl's face.  There was no sentiment I could find that said that, so the Stamparatus and Make a Difference Stamp set to the rescue.  I built the sentiment I wanted for this card.

The Stamp Layering for the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge happened when designing the sign the girl is holding and also adding the stripes to her skirt.  Finally, I decided to use the sketch for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge and that helped determine some of my design and embellishment choices for this card. It just makes me smile.  I hope it puts a smile on your face as well.

Make sure you head over to the challenges to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries.
