I was thinking/Good times

Hey y'all! Happy Friday! Anyone else glad it's Friday?!...I don't really have anything going on, though Fridays always feel different for some reason? ;)

Anyhow, I'm stopping in today to share a not so CAS card. I was browsing through some challenges the other day. I came across the current Seize the Sketch challenge. Now, normally I might not have tried playing with this particular sketch, only because it's out of my comfort zone. Though, I decided to go for it! And I have to say, I'm glad I did! ;)

You see?...This isn't one of my normal CAS cards! I used some pattern paper and ooooh, an embossing folder...say what?! lol That's right, an embossing folder! ;) Then I did a little cutting for my speech bubble. And lathered up my card with a fun little flag, some twine, and sequins! I actually, had quite fun making this card (and not that I don't always have fun making my cards. This one was just a little different.)!

Okay, and hopefully y'all can see the sketch still?...Instead of having the two papers go straight across, I decided to use a angle. Then instead of using a oval, I used the speech bubble/flag. And lastly, instead of having an star on my card, I went for adding some twine. So, what's your thoughts?!...I'd love to know!

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day/weekend!

  5. This is FABULOUS, Shelly! I hear ya about the embossing folders (what are they!??)! I love that you tweaked the sketch a bit and made it your own!! Totally creative! LOVE!

  6. Shelly, this rocks!! I love how the sequins mimic the thought bubble idea, and this is just such a perfectly clustered embellishment - and the sketch inspiration is TOTALLY there. Awesomesauce :) Thanks for coming to play with us at Seize the Sketch :)
