Wow Geese - Stampin' Up! Silly Goose

   After several attempts to create a card for the current Global Design Project sketch I finally came up with a design that stuck to the layout.  A few others that I tried just ended up morphing into something not terribly close. 

  I ended up with a Well done! Congrats! Wow! kind of card by combining the fist bump geese from the Silly Goose set with the "wow" sentiment from Conversation Bubbles set.  Pulled the bright colors straight from the strip of Dandy Designs DSP.
  The geese are stamped in Memento Black, colored in with Blends markers and then fussy cut.  I popped them on dimensionals onto a Stitched Rectangle.  I had drew the little fist bump lines as the ones made with the stamp were trimmed off during fussy cutting for a cleaner edge.
  The sentiment is embossed in white on Fresh Freesia card stock then cut with the coordinating die.  I cut a Coastal Cabana banner and trimmed it down a bit to better fit the word bubbles.

  I found some very old Pool Party baker's twine (remember when it used to come on the cardboard?? thats how old it is!!) and added a large bow underneath the sentiment.

  I stamped 2 small stars in Coastal Cabana and then added a few Opaque Adhesive-backed gems to finish the details on this card.

  I'm glad I was patient and kept trying this sketch even though the first few tries weren't so hot!  

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
