Hi there kangaroo

This card is inspired by two challenges - this week's Freshly Made Sketch and Addicted to CAS. You can see the sketch below. The theme at Addicted to CAS this week is luxury. For this card, I have two luxury items - the first is the sentiment in gold, no further explanation needed. The second is the luxury of having a large enough stash of crafting supplies that when you need a specific type of paper for your project, and don't have anything at hand, you have such a diverse stash of various crafting supplies that you can actually create you own background papers. For this card, I wanted a nice, spotty paper in bright colours for one of the panels, but I didn't have anything in the right colours. So instead I picked a few Copics from my stash along with the Tim Holtz Bubble stencil and just made my own. Exactly the colours you want! And so much fun to make. I am also entering the card at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where Anything goes this week.
