Here's my card for the current SugarPea Designs anything goes challenge.  I used the Hashtag Hipster set along with the current sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for this fun, bold design.

#thxs card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from SugarPea DesignsI stamped the phone using my blackest black ink (Versafine Onyx Black) for the outside and a shiny silver ink for the screen.  The "#thxs" sentiment was stamped on the screen in the same black ink.  I cut out the phone, then used foam tape to adhere it to a yellow panel with strips of multicolored chevron patterned paper at the bottom.   The chevron strips were broken up by a narrow strip of black cardstock.  I arranged a trio of enamel dots around the phone, then layered the panel onto a contrasting black mat.  The finished panel was adhered to a white card base.

Materials Used:
Hashtag Hipster stamp set (SugarPea Designs); Encore Silver ink, Versafine Onyx Black ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); Lemon Drop cardstock (My Favorite Things); Basic Black cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Back to School 6x6 paper pad (Doodlebug Design); black enamel dots (Michaels); foam tape
