Bling It Up

Bling is this week's theme on the Cas-tastic Wednesday Challenge and here is my effort. Bling is not really my thing being a less-is-more type of crafter, so I didn't go overboard with the gems. Although perhaps I should have, as although the sun was shining they are not very obvious in this photo.

As you can see, I used pesky acetate for this card
and also a stamp by Elusive Images. I stamped with Versamark, blew the dust off my chalks and this is the result! The blue sentiment border is backed with green ribbon on both sides of the card for a neat finish. Whilst making this card I realised that unwittingly, the last card I made also had the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. Note to self...must get away from this format!

Thank you for stopping to look.

Stuck for a Title

.....apart from something like 'Summer Time' - so predictable! (yawn) Quite often I find it hard to come up with a suitable heading for a post, wish I was more imaginative.

Anyway, about the card.... it was a VERY quick and easy make and it's my entry for the Wednesday Castastic Challenge and also the Crafty Calendar Challenge where the themes are summer. Have to admit I got the idea for this card from an old craft magazine and have added a few touches.

Have a whole week off work ahead of me now, which I am really looking forward to, and my cousin's wedding on Friday. I am helping with the floral arrangements later in the week and will post some snaps next time.

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping to look.

Here is a quick card which I knocked up last night. I am entering it into this weeks CAStastic Challenge where they are looking for cards made with Kraft.

I used a Personal Impressions sentiment and added a retro die-cut flower which I embossed with circles.

Hope you like it and TFL.
