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!!
