Hey Everyone! Today's day at work went very well and I'm happy to say it won't keep me up at night with worry. Lots to learn but the ladies I work with are really fabulous and patient.
This card was made for three challenges: EBTKS, CAS-tastic, and Embellish. The current CAS-tastic challenge was to use three of several techniques on one card. I chose image stamping, paper piercing, and inked edges. This card really was simple but it packs a punch with those colours and paper piecing and piercing.
For the piercing bit I stamped and cut the leaf image, placed it on my cardstock and pierced the outline. It give's a much more subtle affect than paper piecing or stamping but still defines the image. Neat hey? Those terrific patterned papers are from the October Afternoon Fly a Kite collection. Love it! I bought it for my birthday a month ago and finally got it in the mail last friday. Haven't had much time to play around with it but I'll try to make some time this weekend.
Tomorrow I'll be working a full day and won't be home for dinner but fortunately for me (or probably more so for my hubby) my mother-in-law plans to have dinner ready for him when he gets home. Today I'm grateful for a supportive family...what are you grateful for? You might be grateful to hear about Ann's Blog Anniversary giveaway. Just head on over to check out her wonderful CAS creations and a chance to win! You won't be disappointed.
