Hey, friends!  Happy Friday!  I have a sick kid home today.  After a healthy serving of chocolate chip pancakes, she's snuggled on the couch watching Dolphin Tale for the 3rd time!  This gives me a few minutes to stamp!

Once I saw the sketch at Clean and Simple Stamping today, I immediatly knew I would use the Sanded Embossed Background technique!  (Not sure if that's really what this is called, but we're goin' with it!)

Honestly, I  never would have put Poppy Parade and Pool Party together…would you?  Since the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series came out in the Sale-a-bration Catalog, I've been using this combo and it really works!

The card base is 11 x 4-1/4, Soft Suede Layer is 4-3/4 x 3-1/2, and DSP is 4-1/2 x 3-1/4.
