Anyway, as it's Friday it's time for a new challenge at Totally Papercrafts. And this week was definitely a challenge for me! Our Lovely Lisa has chosen the challenge 'CAS - Black & White'. Now I browse around lots of blog out there in Blogland and some people do fantastic CAS cards, but when I try it mine always look unfinished! But, I thought I'd be brave and have a go...
I think I managed the Black & White - but the CAS is probably a bit dodgy.... I don't think my crafting brain is geared to a clean and simple layout.
Anyway, I've used a tree stamp and sentiment both from Chocolate Baroque, with some added pearls and gems on the tree. These are matted onto silver mirri card, with some b&w gingham ribbon (from Joanna Sheen). The die cut flower was made with a Sizzix die.
So after all the huffing and puffing while I tried to decide what to do, I was quite pleased with it when I'd finished, although it's perhaps a bit on the simple side!
So I do hope that you'll join in with us this week at Totally Papercrafts. I'd love to get some more CAS inspiration from everyone!
