learn.live.hope...

Hello friends!!  Happy weekend... popping in with a card I made for the current Less is More challenge (shades of grey) that uses the current sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch


I turned the sketch on it's side to make it work with my Penny Black "in a row" die.   I have been dying (hee hee) to use this particular die ever since it arrived in my mailbox and the current CTS was the perfect opportunity! The sentiment is also from Penny Black, (learn, live, hope - 4312F).  Speaking of Penny Black make sure you check out the blog this weekend.  Guest designer Wida Miller is providing a ton of CAS inspiration using PB stamps.   I started my card by stamping the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock using Memento's London Fog ink.  The "in a row" image was die cut from Stampin' Up!'s basic grey cardstock and adhered using tiny pieces of foam dimensionals.  A scattering of grey sequins was added, the piece adhered to the card base and I was done.  Love, love, love how this card turned out... crisp, white and CAS!

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI White; Stamps:  Penny Black; Die:  Penny Black; Ink: Memento; Sequins:  Ellen Hutson

I saw your card whilst visiting "Less is More" and it really caught my eye. I really like how you've layered the die over the sentiment, a really lovely card.
