Don't worry, it's just a quick post this afternoon!
It's a 2-in-1 challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays this week. CAS-ual Fridays have teamed up with Clean and Simple Stamping for one week only! Clean and Simply Stamping have provided the sketch layout for this week's challenge and here it is:
I really like this sketch, especially as it's not something I would have come up with myself. I like symmetry and my OCD senses were tingling when I saw this sketch! I'm getting better at not panicking so much when asked to leave my comfort zone though, so it was ok! :)
Here is the card I made;
I was really in the CAS zone when I started making this! I wanted to keep it neutral with a splash of colour. I haven't ever made such graphic looking flowers before and I'm really pleased at how they turned out :) I used black and silver for the 'petals' as I wanted to give the impression of a silhouette. I embossed the bottom-most layer to add a little bit of interest and variation in the whites. Some pale blue rhinestones and a some simple Calligraphy and I was done! I was amazed at how quickly this card came together actually. I often find it's the most simple looking cards that take the most time and work!?
Thanks for stopping by and please let me know what you think, your feedback is always welcome!
