CCC #35



Happy Tuesday Earthlings!

It is a fun week at CASology where this week's Cue Card is:



I pulled out some old October Afternoon patterned papers I had to make scrapbook pages for my son.  That collection was called Nite Light so die cute one of the images with my Lil' Inkers Stitched Mats.  I typed and printed the sentiment on the same piece a paper but on the flipside, matted the image and adhered it to a piece of Vintage Cream cardstock.  Patterned paper can be very effective on a CAS card as long and you keep the number of patterns and colours to a minimum.




I am also submitting this card to the Simon Says Stamps A Bit O'Green challenge. 


Head on over to CASology today to learn what the 'cue card' means to you, how you can play along and see the all the cards created by the Design Team to inspire you.
