I channelled by friend Sandie of London Days, a CAS purist, to make this little card, using my newly acquired stamps from Clearly Besotted. And yes, I am clearly besotted with these stamps. They're fabulous and so easy to work with. Look at what I made:
|No patterned papers. I embossed some pink CS with the Swiss Dots folder, made a window for the greeting and popped the pink panel on some foam tape.|
|The stamps are by Clearly Besotted from the "It's Your Birthday" set and to cut I used their coordinating dies. The greeting was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and the elements with Memento Bamboo Leaves.|
|The greeting is seen through an aperture in the pink panel. Final touch, one pink bling. That's it! None of my usual stitching, fiddling with ribbons, pearls, layers of die-cuts and patterned papers. By George! I've finally cracked the CAS code!|
Here are some challenges for this card:
Clearly Besotted Challenge #2 "Seeing spots";
Addicted To Stamps #53 "Colours: Chocolate Chip, Pretty In Pink, Wild Wasabi";
Make It Monday #149 "Anything Goes";
Word Play Saturday "Birthday";
Anabelle Stamps #167 "Polka Dots"; and
CAS-ual Fridays #109 "Polka Dots"
I must admit, it was not easy for me to make this card and in the end it had me screaming for a shot of something strong. I'd better go lie down now. Thanks for stopping by and I'll see ya tomorrow for our usual MojoMonday date. Nightie-nite, y'all!
