i like you.... (and a request)

Hello friends... here with another little card I made.  This time for the current CAS(e) this Sketch challenge.  I kinda went a little funky with this one.  It isn't exactly CAS and it isn't exactly shabby chic... but a little bit of both!!  


The little flourish is from the My Favorite Things Own Your Story set and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things January Triple Scoop set.   I stamped the flourish using Close to My Heart's Barn Red and the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I wasn't going to use a banner on my card, but I just had to use the banner in my new Stampin Up!/Sizzix Framelits Hearts A Flutter dies.  I cut the banner from corrigated paper and then swiped on some white ink.  A strip of natural muslin was pleated and then adhered to the banner.  A button/twine embellishment was then added and the banner adhered.  I distressed the edges of the cardstock piece and curled two corners before adhering the piece to the card base.  Like I said... it is kinda funky... but I like it!

Thanks for stopping by and if you made it to the bottom of my post I have a little request to make of you.  I have been competing in a card contest taking place at the Practical Scappers blog.  This is the first time I have entered a contest like this and the first time I have made it as far as I have.  I would love to make it to the top 10... oh heck who am I kidding???  I would love to win!  But in order to make it to the top 10 I need your vote.  So.. if you are interested in voting, please go here.  Thanks!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Inks:  Close to My Heart & Memento; Dies:  Stampin Up!; corrigated paper:  The Funkie Junkie; Muslin:  Montana Misfits; Button:  PTI; Twine:  Montana Misfits

I hopped across, and my goodness you have some competition my girl, I didn't realise Man cards could look so amazing. I loved yours, so of course I voted for you, good luck.
Love this one on your beloved Kraft too.

This card is great... I've never managed to get the shabby chic look but you've inspired me to have another go!

I think this fits both categories perfectly, but I'm no expert in either--LOL! Anyway--I adore this card, Rosemary! Every detail is perfect & the overall effect is wonderful! Off to find the place to vote, my friend.

Kath said...

A great card - I can never manage shabby chic, it always looks shabby but no chic!

I've placed my vote for you.

Beautiful texture and lots of detail, but keeping it small, keeps it CAS. And I voted for you! Best of luck! Thanks so much for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!
