Something Fancy & Like An Animal Specialty DSP for #fms569

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by Jacquie's Sketch Challenge over @ Freshly Made Sketches.  Please click the hyperlink or the challenge image below to visit the blog and enjoy the challenge.  When I first saw this sketch I was sure I'd create a scene to frame in with a great sentiment on the bottom but then I opened the Like An Animal Specialty Designer Series Paper, #160841 and wow!

I love this paper so much I had to make it the star of the show!  Each piece has a shiny side,  and I think I'll be making a few special bags and such, stay tuned :)

***  The Trix  ***

*  Frame the fabulous 3 3/4" x 5 " piece of dsp with a Smoky Slate cardstock layer a smidge bigger, (1/16th of an inch)  then adhere to a Basic Grey card base.

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Something Fancy Stamp Set, #160416 using Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock then die cut with a Something Fancy Die, #160424.  

*  Adhere two pieces of ribbon to the label before adhering to the card.  I used the Smoky Slate Textured Ribbon, #155813 *currently available on the Clearance Rack woohoo!* & Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon, #152463  *Trix* apply Stampin' Seal to the back of the label die and add the ribbon to it.  Adhere both to the card.  Embellish with the Classic Matte Dots, #158146.
