CAS27 - Thanks

This week's challenge on the CASology blog is "Blue".   This is what I came up with:

I was a lucky winner on  Karen's The Bald Dragonfly blog and one of the items is this Crafts Meow Lovely Ovals stamp set.  I embossed it in white and then used my Nestie oval to cut out the center.  It fit perfectly!

I colored it in with Peacock Feathers Distress Inks and after embossing a Hero Arts sentiment - I flicked water droplets on it.  I embossed the background with a PTI impression plate and then threaded three buttons through twine and glued them down on the site.

Not sure what went on with the picture - but nothing seems to match!  It definitely all blends in real life!

Thanks to those who contacted me about the Craft Sale for Pups!  If you missed yesterday's post - feel free to click on the button on the top right OR on the page link above!

Thanks!!!


Thanks for your visit!

I get a kick out of seeing your dogs with snow on their noses! ADORABLE!

Great card, I'm loving the twine with the buttons on the side!

Your card is perfection, so very beautiful with all the blue! Regarding your Craft Sale, are you looking for already made items, supplies, or Pay Pal donations? If they are cards already made, do you want them in envelopes or clear bags?
