Snailed it! with Freshly Made Sketches

Lil' Inker Designs is sponsoring the Freshly Made Sketches #200 Challenge this week and the LID design team got to join in on the fun!

Jen Carter You Snailed It 1.2

The sketch, shown below, was open to a lot of interpretation, so the card above is what I came up with.  I used the fun stamp set called Snailed It! and the coordinating Snailed It Dies!

The sentiment "Snailed it!" (how fun is that!!) is stamped inside a speech bubble that I die cut with Lil' Inker Designs Speech Bubbles 2 Dual Stitched die set.  I used the COOL & TRENDY Ombre Stripes paper pad that if you don't own yet, you really should consider adding to your collection!  And another note about the speech bubble set is that it is so fun that it stitches both inside the speech bubble and also on the negative piece of leftover cardstock!  Love that versatility.

For my line across the top 1/3 of the card, I die cut & stamped the snail from Snailed it! above the "smile" sentiment.  The line the snail would make across the paper is invisible but hopefully understood.  It is a loose interpretation of the sketch I know. 

I really like how the Snailed it! stamp set and dies can be used to make masculine cards!
