CASology Week 188: Laugh

Welcome to Week 188 at the CASology Challenge!

It took a little work to come up with my card this week because I was determined to use Paper Smooches Qwick Qwips LOL sentiment and struggled a little to build a design around it. In fact, I had walked away from the idea and was going through a few other sentiments when I discovered "you make me laugh out loud" in the Group Hugs stamp set. The two stamps sat on my desk for a while before it occurred to me that they would layer nicely.

I stamped the LOL in Limeade Ice first and then used my MISTI to help line up the second sentiment, stamping it in Versafine Onyx. Do the stick figures from Altenew Figure Effects stamp set look like they are laughing out loud? To me, it looks like they are ready to slap a knee, they are laughing so hard!

Again, the MISTI was the perfect tool for getting the stick figures exactly where I wanted them. The stamped panel is trimmed and popped up on the card base for added interest.

What direction does the word LAUGH take you? A funny image, a punny sentiment? For more inspiration, check out the amazingly creative Design Team cards this week.

We are looking forward to laughing our way through the gallery this week - just remember to keep it Clean & Simple! You have until Monday at noon (CMT) to link your card to the CASology blog and a chance to win a prize from this week's sponsor, Pink and Main.
