Something Fancy Stamp Set with Free DSP for #jai637

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card was inspired by the sketch challenge over @ Just Add Ink .  If you'd like to give this sketch a try click the hyperlink, or the image below to visit the blog challenge post and see what you can create.

I tried to create a card with colours from my friends favourite football team, using the Dandy Designs DSP  from Sale-a-bration, #160836.  It's free while supplies last with a $120 order 'til February 28th 2023.  How did I do, can you guess the football team?

***  The Trix ***

* Angles on a card always challenge me a bit, but I think I figured out a *Trix* for this one.  After cutting the angle pieces from two coordinating 4 x 5 1/4 pieces of dsp glue them to a 4 x 5 1/2 piece of vellum before adhering them to the Bermuda Bay cardstock layer.  The Multipurpose Glue allows you to squish them into place evenly on the vellum layer.

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Something Fancy Stamp Set, #160416 on Basic White then cut out with a Stylish Shapes, #158183 circle die.  Adhere the circle to a Bermuda Bay Stylish Shapes banner die.

*  The card base is Night of Navy.  Is your guess correct? The answer is the Miami Dophins - Navy, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, & Mango Melody.  (& yes, when I compared the colours online, I thought Mango Melody was closer to the orange they use than Pumpkin Pie).
