2018 Card Design Superstar

It's THAT time of year again!  Time for MFT's Superstar Challenge.  Here is my entry for the "Clean & Simple Genius" category.

The background was done using the Canine Companions set.  I stamped the dogs randomly using gray ink.  I also made this same card with black ink, but the black was a little too strong.  The gray worked out much better as it definitely gave the bright colors of the letters more "pop".  

I die cut the word smile several times with the Smile Die-namics die.  Twice in black and then once in each color.  Each letter is stacked 3 times with the two black ones at the bottom.  This lifts it off the page a bit and the black gives the word a little bit of a shadow look.

The sentiment came from the same stamp set and I used a "free with 60" die for the banner (Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips). 

Thank you for visiting!
