CCC #36



Happy Tuesday and time for this week's CASology Cue Card!
The week The Alley Ways Stamps is sponsoring CASology and offering up a prize.  The Design Team is using Alley Ways Stamps for our projects for today's Cue Word:




The song Edelweiss from the musical the Sound of Music was my inspiration for my card the week.  My stamp set that I used is Petal Pushers and I chose the lyrics "Bloom & Grow" from the song. I did a little creative masking to create my sentiment.  When I ran the pinking shears forward and back across the top of my white panel I ended up with a grove in the paper from the die.  So rather than start again I folded the paper to make it more prominent and called it a happy mistake.  Enjoy this memory 






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.

I love that song " Bloom and Grow" (my first English song that I learned!). Such a sweet card, Tracey! I love the white background as the images are so crisp and lovely against it! Your details in scoring and edging are perfect touches!

Virginia L. said...

Just realized that the scoring and edging are happy mistakes--FABULOUS!

I absolutely love this card- I knew what song you were thinking of straight away as I had many happy hours as a child watching this movie.

This is so bright and cheery, Tracey! Kind of needing that right now with the lack of spring that is continuing around here! :)
Love the trio of blooms and the pinking shears look!

Jean said...

Love your bright and cheery flowers ~ a very creative way to cover up your crease ~ I would have never known it was unintended!
