TMS #424


Today I have a CAS card - something I don't often make. For some reason I struggled with this week's sketch until I saw this pretty card on Brenda's blog. It inspired me so I CASED it to make my card this week. Thanks Brenda :) Here's this weeks TMS sketch #424...


 I started by masking off a rectangle area on white cardstock with post-it notes, then sponged distress inks of Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, and Mustard Seed. Next I stamped the (retired) SU! Upsy Daisy image in Versafine black ink. For the corner element I stamped 3 birds from a SNSS Serene Silhouettes stamp set. I added a sentiment panel with a MFP sentiment heat-embossed with white on black. I placed this all on a black mat and then a pumpkin pie card base.

Please check out my DT member's blogs for some more inspiration in using this great sketch by Melissa. You can find them here:


Thanks for dropping by and have a fabulous day!

Carol

Oh my, this is gorgeous, Carol! I popped over to look at Brenda's cards and was amazed at how you all are making these beautiful cards and SO CAS! I don't have the oxide pads but WOW, they make such pretty almost like sunsets on your cards! Love the sketch this week and I know I sound like a broken record but I hope to play along as life will be calming down now. Absolutely gorgeous, my friend! :)

This is a beautiful card Carol, the colours you used look great and I really like the silhouette stamp. The birds in the corner are a super design feature.
