CAS Card-Hi There







ETA:  Donna Huisinga has honored me on her blog, stop by and show her some luv please, a super talented lady that has lots to share, so sweet too!  Thanks so much.
Here is a quick little CAS card I made using the new flower set that was released by Verve Friday night.  It is from the set Chicks Rule.  I cut it out using the Nesties labels Seventeen and then heavily sponged around the edges.  I added bakers twine, twill ribbon, and stitching.  I played along with several challenges one being from my good friend and SU demo Deb Horst, she has started a new challenge called Last But Not Least.  This time around we are to use embossing.   I hope you have a relaxing evening....enjoy!

  2. This is so pretty, Teresa! Love the embossing. I've never played along with the Less is More challenge. I think I'll play along this week. :)

  3. Hi Teresa, It's great to see you joining our challenge with this lovely card.
    It's not quite the proportions of the sketch but I realise that cards sizes vary enormously from country to country.
    For reference, a DL card (and I have no idea what DL stands for)is about 8ins x 4ins... we have funny sizes in the UK!
    It would be great to see you join us again next week!

  4. There is that fabulous EF again! I have been out bid twice on eBay for it - ugh! Love the colour combo and how you have used the flowers and sponged around them.

  5. Your card is just lovely - beautiful colors and embossing. Very clever to use a die to create your ATC. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Our Creative Corner.

  12. Oh this is so beautiful I really admire how well you use Kraft cardstock. It had always seemed like such a dull color to me until I started seeing all your lovely cards. TFS

  13. I love your card, your choice of colour works so well with the challenge neutrals. Don't forget though that our challenge at the OCC was to combine an ATC (2.5" x 3.5") with the colour challenge. Thanks for joining us this week!
