Bright & CAS Gratitude

Hello!  So, I decided to make a quick card tonight...it really took under 5 minutes!  I combined some fabulous challenges and am very pleased with my creation!

Here it is~

Details~




For these fabulous challenges~

 

 


I've been trying to perfect my CAS and one layer skills.  This card is actually the first draft!  I didn't have to throw card bases to the wind multiple times in disgust and frustration!  I started by dry embossing two sets of three lines down my card.  Then I stamped my leaves (using masking) and sentiment and added some Melon Mambo bling!  Ta da!!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!  I hope you like what you see and that you're inspired to create something for these fabulous challenges today!  I'm also adding this to Susan's Gratitude Campaign list--sending cards to say thank you to those around us! I hope you join in this fun and fitting endeavor as well!  Happy stamping! :)

This is a VERY sweet card, Mynnette. I thank you so much for sharing it with us in the current challenge at Word Art Wednesday. We miss you when you aren't able to play along with us, and enjoy your art so much when you can! Hope things are working out well with your new endeavors. I've been thinking of you!
