Happy Tuesday, everybody?
Did you all have a fabulous Memorial Day?
I love it when a holiday falls on a Monday,
because when the work week starts,
you already know you're one day closer to Friday!
And speaking of Fridays, I recently came across a new
(to me, at least) challenge called CAS-ual Fridays.
CAS in the papercrafting world stands for Clean And Simple.
CAS cards are HARD for me.
I always think I need to add "one more thing"
to make a card complete.
Nevertheless, I wanted to challenge myself
and see if I could do it.
The theme of this week's challenge is:GRADUATION.
And it's being sponsored by Market Street Stamps
who has a lot of really adorable images.
Here's my card:
I'm not positive it actually qualifies for CAS status...
I'm not clear on what the rules are.
But I did keep it all one layer.
I added dimension by embossing my card front with
an embossing folder by Tim Holtz for Sizzix,
which I think really brings this card to life.
Instead of making a little diploma,
I thought it would be fun to make this funky ruffle
with a page from a vintage book
(Across Five Aprils, if you were wondering).
I really like the effect!
Well, anyway, I hope you all have a great day!
Talk to you again soon!
