love makes the world...

Hey friends!!  Hope your week has been going well.  We have been having some beautiful weather here in the Pacific Northwest!!  With all this good weather my crafting time has been cut down, but I did find time to create a little card for the current CASology challenge.  Yep... Lisa and I are continuing our personal little challenge revolving around CASology.   I also used the layout from Freshly Made Sketches and the color combo from ColourQ so I will be adding my card to those lineups and the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.   I have had the Concord & 9th Map Love stamp set for well over 6 months and have been wanting to make something with it.  When I saw the CASology cue word of Journey I immediately thought of this set.  I realize that some may not understand what connection my card may have to the cue word, but there is one, lol!  Obviously the earth journeys around the sun, but love is also a journey and one of the most rewarding journeys that we will ever take!!  I also think that stamping is a journey.  When I started my stamping journey I didn't know much, but as I have traveled this road I have learned a lot, had a lot of fun and met some pretty nice people!  So... there you have it... my take on the cue word.   Now that I have that explanation out of the way I will say a little bit about my card which is pretty straight forward I think. I thought the FMS layout was perfect for this type of card.   Lots of white space, a nice visual triangle created by the sequins and a pleasing arrangement of the colors.  Oh... and I managed to have pretty much everything in the lower third of my card!   This kind of card reminds me why I like clean and simple designs so much!

Thanks for stopping by today... would love to hear your thoughts on my card!  Please make sure you head over to Lisa's blog to check out her card.  I know it is going to something super clever!


Supplies:  Cardstock: white; Stamps:  Concord & 9th Map Love; Inks:  Stampin Up! So Saffron, Rose Red and Rich Razzleberry; Memento Tangelo; Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins; Die:  A Jillian Vance Design
