Hey thanks

Yes, I am a child of the 80s, why do you ask? Seriously though, this is a challenge card for the SSUS group. We were to make a thank you card using current Stampin' Up! stamps. Sounds easy enough, but most of my sets are retired at this point. I figured I could spell out thanks using the Jumbo Outline alphabet and was inspired to do it in rainbow colors by the name frame I made before Christmas.

Once I made that decision, I rifled through the new catalog to see what else I had and when I saw that Seeing Spots was still current, I figured I had found the perfect match! I inked up each ring of dots with my marker to mirror the rainbow colors in the thanks sentiment. The whole card has a Punky Brewster vibe to me. Totally out of my comfort zone with the bright primary colors, but I was really digging it. I hope my challenge partner likes it too!

The layout was adapted from a Verve sketch, VSHR2 that I found on splitcoast stampers. The thanks panel came out so large that I had to drop the ribbon, but I think it works.

Stamps: Jumbo Outline Alphabet and Seeing Spots from Stampin' Up!
Ink: Real Red, Only Orange, Yo yo Yellow, Green Galore, Brilliant Blue, Lovely Lilac, Palette Noir
Paper: Shimmery White, Real Red, Green Galore
Accessories: Bold Brights Brads, Dimensionals
