I was browsing the blog of one of my more recent discoveries (Limedoodle) and saw a card she CASEd for a challenge.

I LOVED the layout using a popped up white panel on the front of the card (the link above takes you directly to that challenge if you want to check it out) and had to immediately make a card using the same technique.

I was itching to use one my new PTI stamps (Up and Away) and its matching dies so I chose a cheerful piece of patterned paper for colouring inspiration/direction and came up with this cutie:

I had a little trouble getting the true colours to show in the picture but it’s fairly close.

What a wonderful layout – you’ll be seeing it again…soon…like, maybe next time I blog (okay, second or third “next time” because I have a few more projects to share but I was so darn excited about this layout that the card I just made jumped the line!).

You should go make a card using this technique.  Seriously.  Do it now. 😉
