Tuesday Trigger and CAS-ual Fridays!

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Happy Wednesday! I have a CAS card to share today. It's for 2 challenges that I'm so excited to play in!
Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger


In case you haven't heard, CAS-ual Fridays is a BRAND NEW CAS challenge blog! Be sure to check it out if you haven't already, and see the DT's awesome Texting Skills projects. I'm thrilled to also participate in the Tuesday Trigger for the very first time! I have a hunch I will be returning to these challenge blogs quite a bit in the near future ;-)

I had an idea floating around for this, and then I looked through my stamps to double check for any 'text' stamps, and Voila, I found a heart that I totally forgot about and it fit perfectly for my idea!!! It is stamped, edges inked, cut out, and popped up with dimensionals on top of the PTI framed piece. The card base is partially embossed, then I stamped the Three Line Border stamp by DeNami Design right underneath it to mimic the lines in the skirt. I pulled the colors of the skirt into this too. Finish it off with a few buttons and twine, and you have yourself a clean and simple card for a very special someone ;)

Thanks for stopping by! I'm goin' to workout, and then watch American Idol to cheer on Hailey Reinhart!! She is from my town!! Who is your favorite remaining AI contestant? I also like James :-)
