Rainbow Stripe

Good morning everyone! In making CAS card, I notice that sometimes one change or one extra thing could make a big difference on the end result.

Let's look at the card first. I am using SP & Company Sympathy & Care stamp set.

Originally, I only wanted to put a bird and a sentiment on this card. I stamped the sentiment first. Then, as I was about to glue the bird down, my eyes caught this strip of scrap paper that I had laying around my desk.

Looking at the sentiment, I realized this rainbow color strip would be the perfect design element to match the sentiment. And, the pop of colors make this card more cheerful than my original intended design. Just that one strip of paper made quite a difference!

Also, what a great way to use up scraps. :) Look in your scrap box and see what delightful surprise you might find in there. Have a fab weekend, everyone.
