CCC #43



It is time for this week's CASology Cue Card, this week's word is:




We can only imagine what creative ideas you will come up with for this challenge.
I had a bunch of colourful hexagons cut out from a card I made a few weeks ago and decided to use them to create a bold and graphic CAS card.  I butt the hexagons up against each other and then added a die cut word over top.  The top half of the word was adhered directly to the hexagon panel to give it a bit of dimension.




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.
