I’m back!!!! ;-) Just in time for a new Sentimental Sundays challenge ;). I hope you missed me because I missed you loads!!! ;).
This week’s challenge is sooooo outside my comfort zone, so far in fact that it would be like from here (UK) to Poland (where I went on holiday). And back! Lol ;). The theme is CAS, clean and simple that is. Which is not normally my thing, is it…?
My creation was inspired by Moxie Trigger light & bright photo:
I wanted my card to be light & bright, as it seemed right for a CAS design, so I used white and pink colours with silvery sparkly accents and a lovely softy paper, just like the carpet from the picture...
I used the sketch from the Clean and simple stamping #105 although I moved the scalloped border to the bottom of the card:
And here’s the fruit of my efforts:
I have recently got completely hooked on the idea of recycling anything I can think of / things that I have been meaning to throw away for ages. Why? Well, have a look in here. This is a blog of my new blogging Friend Sue Allan who does some absolutely mesmerising things out of…well, everything really! This, if you think about it, is really the core of crafty art, the art of creativity! She is definitely my “recycling” Guru!
The paper I used is a wrapping from a present that I got from my family in Poland. I just loooove the hammered effect and the soft feeling of it which close up looks really lush, especially on the Cuttlebug embossed leaves…
And the flowers… well, this is my first attempt to the tissue paper flowers. And the tissue paper comes from….yes, that’s right! Another present I was given lol ;-)))).
The sentiment is of course by Ann Raindrop Echo for Whimsy Stamps. By the way, as with every Sentimental challenge, there is a lovely set of free sentiments for grabs, designed by Ann. And if you’d like to shop for more, pop over to Whimsy Stamps.
The card was embellished with a few sparkly jewels and…I had to ask my hubby to drag me away from the table to stop adding more otherwise the CAS idea would be out the window! rofl :).
I do hope you can join in with this week’s challenge. And don’t forget to check out the creations crafted by the rest of DT – they are simply FABULOUS!
Sunday hugs to everyone!
