CAS-ual Fridays #29

After my long absence I decided to browse the web for some challenge blogs and came across Cas-ual Fridays so I thought I’d play along. I am all about white and aqua these days and my obsession for these colors is definitely spilling over into my card making. Here is the sketch challenge……….


And here is my take…………..


I had so much fun with this card! I die cut the tree from papertrey inks In the meadow silhouette dies and then added glitter to make it stand out a bit more. The little die cut birds I kept plain so they would stand out a bit. I used a negative image from PTI’s mat stack 1 die that I had from another project and slipped some Basic Grey Sweet Threads paper (one of my favorite collections EVER!!) The seniment is stamped in smokey shadow ink and the rhinestones are the blue from My Minds Eye Lush collection. If you can’t find any of these it is because I bought them all!! They are the perfect aqua rhinestone and unfortunately are discontinuedSad smile.

I am off to wait for the UPS man Smile My kit is coming today and I am soooooo excitedSmile

Have a great day and thanks for looking!

Clean & Simple sketch 167

SInce I have been a card makin’ machine lately thought I would play with a few challenges to get my blogger “legs” back. Today I decided to play with the clean & simple sketch for the week. I have noticed my style has changed a bit over the past year and clean & simple is very appealing to me right nowSmile.

Here is the sketch……..


And here is my take…….


My picture taking skills are definitely lacking but you get the jist of the card. This card took all of 10 minutes to make. Love that about clean and simple.

Thanks so much for looking and have a great daySmile
