Masking Magic (and Thanks!)...

My mom-in-law, Susan, treated me to my first-ever Scrapbook Expo over the weekend and we had so much fun roaming the convention hall and taking a few workshop classes. I wanted to thank her with a little card and I was inspired by this week's Lawnscaping Challenge: One Layer Magic. Single-layer cards are a huge challenge to me, and I thought I would brush off my masking skills and make a truly one-layer card.
BEAN SPOTLIGHT: If you are regular reader of TSB, you'll know that on occasion, I will highlight a product that I particularly love. Today I had to talk about one of my faves, Eclipse Tape, which is a MUST for masking. It's so thin that you don't have any issues with doing things like sponging (like my grassy hill), and, what's more, you can run it through your die-cutting machine, like I did for this card (the frame, clouds, and sun were all done with Eclipse Tape and dies.) Check it out HERE!
