CAS Card

This evening I worked on a single card for two CAS challenges - Less is More (#76 - one layer, three of anything) and Cas-ual Fridays (CFC 61- use strips of color or pattern).  I've never entered a challenge at either of these sites, although I look at them every week.  So I got up my nerve, finally, and decided to enter:


Supplies:  Cardstock: my stash; Inks: CTMH Pear and Dutch Blue, Versa Magic Spring Pansy; Stamps: CTMH Live Life (Lucky Workshop of the Month), True Friends.

I like the script detail on the parenthesis. The middle one is Spring Pansy, a lavendar color. It shows up darker in real life than in the photo.  I love the colors.  It could be for a man or a woman, and I could easily use a different sentiment.  I think this design is very versitile.

    1. Chrissie, I didn't know I had word verification! In fact, I thought I did not have it. Apparently, it was a default selection when I created my blog. It's off now. Thanks so much for letting me know!

  5. Great choice of colors for this versatile design. I love stamps that incorporate text, so those big parentheses are doubly fabulous! Thanks for sharing this with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  6. What a wonderful CAS card - love the image you used and that you varied the colors! Adds interest. I did a card a few months ago with exclaimation points - we neglect symbols but they are sooo fun!!!
