Grunge Me, Continued

Wednesday's OLW card launched my revisit with Grunge Me, a fun little set from Papertrey. It contains an excellent assortment of graphic shapes and images that are just so much fun to combine!

Today's card uses a similar messy vibe as Wednesday's, but with an extra layer to add some order to the chaos and lots of hot pink for a cheerful, feminine touch.

The hot pink baker's twine (Doodlebug) puts a veritable lid on the chaos, although the very light pink swirl peeks up to draw attention (in a subtle way) to the sentiment. I love the movement and whimsy of this card, all contained in a broad, oh-so-white frame.

Thanks for all the thanks you've given for the trapped-white-space post. Glad it was so helpful to so many of you.
