Cuttlebug Challenge's Rendezvous Monday - Color CAS Challenge


For today's Rendezvous Monday over at the Cuttlebug Challenges Blog there's a dual challenge. First....the colors...kraft, black and white/ivory. And the second part....keep it CAS....clean and simple!

It's not the easiest thing to go back to clean and simple lines, but hope I've achieved it with this card. I've used my Forest Branches folder on the Kraft piece. The white stamping on the black is embossed with white EP and the Kraft flower has been touched up with my white gel pen. A fairly simple card but with the Embrace Life set I just don't think you can go wrong - it's one of my favourites! Of course this may change when my new stamps arrive from the new catalogue - oh pleeeeease let it be today!!!

I must also apologise - I may not be posting as often as I have been over the next few weeks. We have the SU Convention at the end of the month - YIPPEEEE - and I have a heap of swaps to finish off. I'll also be making some samples from the new catalogue for my Open Day - so please bear with me....I'll post when I can!

Wow Debbie! You rocked this sketch! I love the embossing folder you used on this...it's perfect with your design. That may be the only folder I don't own but now I wish I did. I like how it looks..very classy. I was going to attempt this challenge but didn't know if I could keep it clean and simple after that last card I did:) LOL Hurry back...I'll miss you. Hope you'll give us a peak at some of the new samples...please, please, please:)
