"What's Up?" by Penny Grimsley
Supply List - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: Jillibean Soup, My Minds Eye; Stamp: American Crafts; Embossing Ink: Versamark; Embossing Powder: Zing; Embellishments: Jillibean Soup, Doodlebug Designs

Variation #1 - I enlarged the background paper to allow more of the print to show.

Variation #2 - I eliminated the square block of paper and added a journaling die cut to bring together and ground the message and the telephone.

Variation #3 - I eliminated the stitching and the small embellishments, as I felt the paper prints were busy enough.

Variation #4 - I added a little bling to set off the message.

I decided this card sketch would make a very nice scrapbook page!

Variation #1 - Adjusted the sizes to create a layout instead of a card.

Variation #2 - Added two more strips of patterned paper.

Variation #3 - Inked the edges of all the strips.

Variation #4 - Placed the background off-center.

OMG, these are so cute. Love love them all. The colors are great and that we get to use scraps/strips of paper is always my favorite.

Great job ladies!
