Kazan's Sketch 20

I had the day off today, so I had some time to play with Kazan's sketch. I wanted to maintain the CAS style I've been working with the past few days, so I left lots of white space to allow the colors to really pop.

Stamps: Short and Sweet (SU)
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, DCWV Glitter Stack dp

Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, ribbon (Michael's), Martha Stewart classic butterfly punch, corner rounder punch

Very pretty. I like how the sentiment about big wishes goes with the big bow.

Beautiful card Ann! I LOVE the white space. It really DOES make the colors pop. I'm NOT off work today, so I haven't had a chance to do this one yet, but maybe tonight. Anyway, beautiful job.

This is wonderful Ann, I am on a bit of a white space journey at the moment, but have to say mine look more as though something is missing, not wonderfully designed like yours.
