High Hopes Luigi

You know when you see a card and it sticks in your brain forever it has to be a great creation. This Luigi is a total case  of this card that Mary Giemza made several years ago. I bought this stamp specifically to make a birthday card for my sweetie...hmmm seems it took me a couple years to get it made LOL!  I bought a fun sentiment to go with it, but decided to try Mary's tutorial on making a curved sentiment in Word-boy did that work slick!

I used  all the different grey families on this one-C,W, N and T's!  My usual grey 'go to' is the C's and W's, so I thought I would pop in the other ones as well. I was also tickled to find this Amber Inks red gingham digi paper all printed up and waiting for me to use. It was meant to be!

Happy Birthday to my Sweetie!
