Hello and happy Saturday. I am finally getting a chance to post some cards I made over the last day or so. My first card is for this week's Addicted to CAS challenge where the code word is GOLD. I must say that I am extra excited to be playing in this particular challenge because I learned that I have been inducted into their Wall of Fame. Wow--what a great surprise.
I was inspired by the sketch at this week's Seize the Sketch STS#26. I really wanted to use Mehndi Medallion in Brilliance Galaxy Gold. The scale was off when I tried my design as a one layer card, so I made my focal point on a smaller scale, and popped it up on my card front. I hope this still qualifies as using the sketch. A trio of shiny gold sequins finishes off the card. I am also entering this card at Simon Says Wednesday Make it Sparkle.
I have entered at Seize the Birthday a couple of times already this week, but I am finally entering with the weekly toppings option--Monochromatic Yellow. I've had paint on the brain this week, as we are re-doing my daughter's room, so I grabbed a yellow paint swatch for my card.
Last up is one more card for this week's Make it Monday challenge for creative card borders. I used Mat Stack 4 and Modern Wood Mats along with some die cut wine glasses from Paper Smooches.
Here is what it looks like open:
I am very excited because my older daughter is coming home late tonight. She has been in Rhode Island all summer studying art. It's the longest and furthest away she has ever been alone, and I would have to admit that she handled it better than I have. I am so very excited that she will be back home before long. I think I will try to make a few cards while I am waiting for her. That always makes the time pass so quickly.
Thanks for Visiting
