Sup?

OMG, I totally forgot about my Etsyversary on Tuesday! 3 years on Etsy. 526 sales. I'm excited to see what this upcoming year brings! :)

Clean & Simple Stamping didn't have their usual sketch challenge up when I sat down to do today's card, so I came up with my own challenge. Hmmm...so, what do you do when you run low of frequently used alphabet letters? You kinda have to think outside the box. That's why people invent words or abbreviate them, right? I decided on "Sup?" as in "what's up?" Clever, huh? I used minimal letters and even a question mark that came with the set. I think the juxtaposition of the informal sentiment and formal looking paper is funny and unconventional. I'm not sure what the chipboard element is next to the sentiment. I think it's a pomegranate or peach or some sort of berry. Anyway, I liked how it was glittery and added some visual interest to the card. The pink paper came as an afterthought because I thought the card needed another pop of color. Look, no ink or stamps! ::gasp::

Card Specs:
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
Paper: American Crafts- City Park (pink), Letterbox (blue/brown)
Chipboard: American Crafts- Fieldhouse- Glitter Blue Skies
Stickers: American Crafts Chipboard Thickers in Typo
Other: Brown Sharpie Ultra Fine Point marker

I am definitely a fan of your combining a very casual term with a formal design. It is very unique!

Thanks for sharing!
