Hi everyone! Happy Friday! I have a CAS/Layered card for a few challenges:
The sketch at Freshly Mades Sketches is lovely; the Card Concept features beautiful butterflies, and the Colour Inkspiration wants Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray and Gold...it says foil, but I used glimmer paper, hope that's okay! So here we go:
My creative friend Vicky made a couple of cards using an older SU set called Touch of Nature. She used the bird image (you can see them HERE), and I remembered that I had that set, so I got it out to see if I could recreate her birds....NOT! But, there was a pretty butterfly in that set, so I stamped it in Stazon ink and watercolored it with Rococo Rose ink. I already had these little DSP strips cut from a previous project, so all I had to do was to diecut some gold foliage and heat emboss a sentiment in gold on a narrow strip of Thick Whisper White cardstock:
I did add a little twirl of gold thread to create some "movement"....now this will go out in the mail to one of my customers! And since the Card Concept likes you to define the style of card you create, I am calling this "layered clean and simple"....the base is very clean, but there are several small layers and embellishments! Thanks for popping in today!
This week is Solanco (Southern Lancaster County) Fair week....it kicks off with a parade on Wednesday night, so Dana, Wayne and Cass went to that. It was funny, I went into Quarryville on Tuesday morning to drop an entry off at the fairgrounds, and the sidewalks were lined with lawn and camp chairs....apparently if you don't stake out your claim early, you won't get a good view of the parade, LOL! Dana said people started putting them out over the weekend!
There are lots of vendor booths with giveaways:
And since it's an ag fair, either ice cream or a milk shake is a MUST!
And for some reason, Cassidy really wanted to see the goats!
We'll be going tonight, it's going to be perfect weather and I can't wait! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
