MDS Monday Sketch Challenge #56

Joan brings us a neat card sketch this week and I had fun pulling from it to make it my own. I found this shaped punch in the See Ya Later download. I added a mat to it in Basic Gray. Then I copied and click on paste in place. Once on that item, I removed the mat from it. I added the Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration Hooray for Parties Digital Ensemble. Now here is where it gets tricky....I cropped the punch so that I just got a line of the DSP instead. Since it was a punch that I added PASTE IN PLACE then it was exactly over the other layer of the punch with the mat so I got that curve perfectly on it.
As for the opacity twist in our challenge, I used it on my background. This is the pattern from the Hooray for Parties download but at 60% which made it go from Basic Gray to Smoky Slate color. I used this alot when the color of something seems too bold on my project. Love the opacity tool!
