Miss You Like Crazy

Hi all! I'm back with a Miss You card. Not only miss you...It's "Miss You Like Crazy"! Such a fun and cute sentiment. I was inspired by this week's Freshly Made Sketches sketch and the colors from Color Throwdown challenge. So here is my take...

I inked my base card using distress ink with two different blue/turquoise tones and allowed it to dry. Then, I pulled out some lovely grid patterned papers from the Simple Stories Snap! Life Basics paper pad to ink up the sentiment. I'm a big patterned paper lover and I'm so attracted to the bold and bright colors of this paper pad. There are also lots of other cool, trendy and vibrant patterned papers from Snap! Life collection such as dots, stripes, mini calenders and etc. Totally awesome!

Next, I simply stamped the sentiment on three different colors of grid patterned papers. Then, I cut the letters out and adhered them nicely on a piece of gray colored grid paper.
 I made a small arrow with a little heart shape on it and placed it on top of the card. I thought it would be cool to use a paper clip to hold the layers together. So I tried that and it looks so perfect!. As a final touch, I added glossy accent to the cute little hearts and some white gel pen stitch lines to frame the sentiment.

I'm also linking up my card at the Simon Says Stamp challenge which is "Anything Goes".

Thanks for stopping and have a nice weekend!
