Hello Sunshine!


Here's a new (to me) challenge: Freshly Made Sketches.  This one appealed to me, and I saved it earlier this week as a possible one to enter.  I added, for time's sake, the additional requirement for myself to use up some of the scraps and leftovers from other projects.  Here's my entry:

Freshly Made Sketches #138

supplies: a tag made from a scrap of watercolor cardstock that was inked with an embossing folder and distress inks, Simon Says Stamp's small hello die, Avery Elle Simply Said Hello stamp set, PTI's Bloom Builders #3 dies, MME black enamel dot, and a Studio Calico paper clip with bow

This is a CAS challenge, so I fought myself to leave it as is........normally I would have embossed that background......but I sat on my hands.  What do you think?

As always, thanks so much for your visit today - have a great weekend!

  6. This is great Lin - sometimes it's hard to know when to stop.... I find the CAS style is tricky for me and I just want to go another step or add just one more thing ;)
    Your card is lovely though, just right for a CAS idea, and perfect that you got to use up those bits and bobs too!
    Have a good weekend, Rx
