More details about the prizes at the end of my post.

I also have a YouTube Video of this card with some of the details:

I wanted to play with the YNS Slim Striped Panel Die again - it's so different than any of the Slimline dies out there right now. I was going to die cut it from scraps of coloured card stock and inlay all the fallaway stripes back into the white one but realized that 1" high strips looked just as good and would be faster & easier. I adhered the card stock strips in behind the white panel - easy peasy!

I really like this Pick Me Up image, with the happy kitty & balloons. I coloured it up with Copic markers and cut it out with the coordinating die. Look how the die cuts out in between the balloon strings - I love that about YNS dies. 

I die cut a second one to glue to the back of the stamped and coloured one. This gives the image good stability and is SO easy to do with dies. It would be difficult to fussy cut a second one and have all the edges match perfectly. I like a thicker image when I'm using an Action Wobble to prevent the plastic base from creasing the image when it goes through the mail.

I added some Stitched Puffy Clouds and also the Cloud Border to create my banks of clouds, 

Finally, here is a peek at the inside. I cut the edges of the YNS Rectangle Scalloped Frame With Piercing Marks from black card stock for the scalloped borders. I love rainbow striped paper, and save all the scraps from a project. I was able to use up a couple of those scraps on the inside and then added some handwriting to finish it off.

The Fun Friday Challenge #145 runs through August 20th 2020 at midnight EST. One random participant will win a $15 gift certificate to the Your Next Stamp store.  If YNS stamps or dies are the focal point then the winner receives an additional $5 gift certificate for a total of $20!!  The winner will be announced on the YNS Blog the Sunday after the challenge closes.
