http://www.asyouseeitchallenge.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/070.jpgToday I am playing along with As You See It‘s Assortment challenge….the assortment of things called for this week:  3 colors, popped up stars, a diagonal, rhinestones, and chevrons.  I popped up my stars using an embossing folder and then I also popped up my Thanks sentiment (I did this by die cutting 3 thanks sentiments of Hello Honey cardstock and one of thin cardboard and then glues them together…tedious for sure but love the look).  My three colors are Hello Honey, Baked Brown Sugar, and Pistachio Pudding.  I love this Crazy About You set….with the matching dies it creates great cards!!

Card details:  Hello Honey cardstock…Pistachio Pudding and Baked Brown Sugar inks…Stampin Up stamps…star embossing folder…rhinestones…Hello You thinlits from Stampin Up.
