Today I'm sharing a card I made for our friend, Cameron, who was recently awarded tenure at the university.

I'm also going to enter this into the most recent Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge: "Anything Goes."

I stamped the brush strokes from DC Abstract Art (by My Favorite Things) in five different ink colors. Once that was dry, I heat embossed the "Congratulations" sentiment (from Simply Said by Paper Smooches) over top. I added the splatters as a finishing touch, matted the focal panel onto a black panel, and popped it up onto a card base with foam adhesive. (Note: Paper Smooches makes a brush strokes stamp set as well called Positive Strokes Two that could be used to create a very similar design.)

I hope you like my creation for today!
