A Triple Challenge CAS Card

AAack! I'm posting another wonky photo taken with indoor lighting that's inadequate. Sorry folks, the sun just doesn't shine in PA anymore!

My card is for the following challenges:

CASology Week #27 - where the cue card is "Blue.

Shopping our Stash #85 - Suits me to a "T" (use 2 things on your card that begin with the letter "T." I used turquoise, twine, and a thank-you sentiment.

(PIN)spirational Challenge#40 to use the following photo for inspiration:

I dug into my unused stash and found this great CB border embossing folder. Sorry, I no longer know the name of the set it came from. I added some black rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty, along with some twine that was recycled from an order I received in the mail. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and was done in Versafine Onyx Black.

Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you some bright sunshine - wherever you are! Send some my way, ok ? :)

Lovin' all the blue!!! Yeah! My very favorite color and this is just a perfect "thank you" card!
The sun is shining here - along with about a 30 mph wind - and cold! Not good! Oh, glad you're playing in {pin}spirational challenge this week too, Carol!

I can add one more "T", and that is for terrific! I wish they would print the names of the EF's on them. It would make things so much easier.

Wonderful CAS card, Carol. I hope I can play in the CAS-ology challenge this week. It's been a while.

We've had 13 inches of rain or maybe a bit more since Dec. 15th. I think we have a promise of sunshine starting Friday. Yippee
