Well actually second best, but it tied in with the greeting on the card. Why second best, you ask? (Well, maybe you didn't, but I'm going to tell you anyway.) Remember when I said Hey Chick is the number one redeemed SAB item, so far? Well, Avant-Garden is the number two item! I'm not surprised, as it's a lovely little stamp set, and I've been seeing all kinds of beautiful things on Pinterest that use it.
Today's card was made specifically for two challenges. The first is the SUO Challenge #168, Sale-A-Bration Fun (using something from SAB), and the second is the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #231, which is a sketch challenge.
I really love the way this turned out! It's such fun for me when I'm making something, and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere - just not "right" - and then all of a sudden an idea hits that pulls it all together. That's what happened with this card.
I had everything but the greeting and card base figured out, but a white strip for the greeting just wasn't cutting it. I switched to Pear Pizzazz, which I had used on the swirl, and that looked better, so I went with Pear Pizzazz for the card base, too. But what really made it all come together was cutting down the background to 3-3/4" x 5", so more of the card base showed!
