TechnoStamper Sketch Challenge - Thinking of You

This weeks TSSC is a little out of my comfort zone - the sketch felt like a CAS look to me.  CAS is not something I do often, as I tend to reach for sponge daubers or distressing when I'm creating.  I cut my DSP to 3" x 3" then cut in half on the diagonal and in half again - giving me 4 triagular pieces.  I flipped two of them over so my patterns would alternate to form the back panel.  I layered these onto a piece of Baja Breeze where the edges were punched with the Lattice Edge Punch.  The diecut is from the Bigz Beautiful Butterflies, then emobbsed with the new Tiger Prints Embossing Folder from Sizzix.  To add color to the embossed areas, I used the CuttleBug Highlights Technique from a past TJNL issue.

Details:
Stamps - Stampin' Up! Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock - White, Baja Breeze, DSP
Ink - Baja Breeze
Other - Sizzix Tiger Prints Embossing Folder, SU Bigz Beautiful Butterflies Die, Big Shot, Sponge Dauber, Kaiser Pearls, SAMJ, Dimensionals



Here's MJ's sketch if you'd like to play along
