Features Stamper 124: Christy S

Now that summer has officially begun, I am trying to do at least one card challenge each day. We'll see how that goes, but it does feel good to be in full swing with that again.
As we look down the barrel of another Monday, I thought I would make a card that gives me a laid back feeling, if possible. This next week is not very busy at all, which is... fantabulous!

Christy S is this week's featured stamper. Her card, Living Large (shown), is one I chose to CASE. I loved the layout and the clean and simple style of this card.
I chose to change her card in several ways. I decided to use patterned paper rather than solids, with the hope that it wouldn't draw too much from the layout. I have a solid kraft base, layered next by SU! Bella Birds DSP. On top of that is a layer of SU! Not Quite Navy, and then another pieced layer of the Bella Birds, the flipside of layer 1. My spabella stamp is in the oval, which is backed by more Not Quite Navy. My oval is a lot more predominant than Christy's, mainly due to the image, but possibly because my card itself is a little smaller than the typical 4.25 x 5.5".
To make the sentiment pop a bit, I popped it up on dimensionals and to tie in layer 1, I put more of it behind the sentiment. Also, I paper pieced her robe to match the DSP.
Fun! I just want to carry it with me all the time. Maybe I shall!
