I'm Impressed

I just got some new Paper Smooches sets in the mail today and I had to play with them.  Since I need to be doing DT stuff, I decided to go CAS and quick!  I used the Squeaky Clean and Qwick Qwips along with some Bazzill Cardstock and some twine, both of which are available at the Ribbon Carousel.  It is kind of hard to tell in the photo but I sprayed the card base with water and then scrunched it to make it wrinkled.  I then put a clean or wrinkle free piece of cardstock over top and sewed it on. I was trying to make it look like the insert has been ironed.


I am playing along with the Paper Smooches Sparks sketch challenge:

And because this went together so quickly, about 8 minutes, I am entering it into the Craft Dash challenge as well.
