I hope your weekend was a good one! I would have loved an extra day to sleep in, but alas, it's back to the bump and grind of a regular work week. The good thing, is that I don't have to be at work all week, until 10am. I don't mind going in a bit later, but working later has its disadvantages. Thank goodness it's only temporary.
Today is week two of challenges over at House of Cards. Even though my cards aren't due until the third week of the month, in support of their first month, I will be attempting to create a card each week. This weeks challenge is CAS. Here is what I created.
The color combo is the same the first four weeks, but the style of card is different each week. I love this shimmery paper, with distressed inks on it. It makes the color shimmery as well, once you've added them. CAS is a style that I have always loved, but haven't really been able to create well. I always want to keep adding stuff to my cards, rather than letting them be simple and lovely. I do love how this turned out, and I am going to continue to try to create more CAS type cards. I used THIS sketch, even though it's from a while back. I really thought it would be perfect for today's CAS theme. I hope the recipient of this card enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it for her.
I've combined the following challenges in my card today:
2 Sisters #151 - Red, White & Blue
Totally Gorjuss #191 - Anything goes, with circles
The Shabby Tea Room #174 - Inspiration Photo
I'm off to get ready for work, and start my day. I do hope you'll head over to the HOC blog, to see the gorgeous CAS cards that are posted for you today. They're wonderful! Also, I hope you'll stop by tomorrow. I've got another post scheduled, with some interesting news.
Have a great day!
