CCC #133

IMG_7482


Happy Tuesday and time for another Cue Word at CASology!
This week our our cue word is:


...how fitting!

Simple design and to the point. The hardest part of this card was the gold thread. It as almost comical how long it took me to get it somewhat where I wanted it. The thread is so light that I couldn't control it and yet it had enough of it's own shape to not twist where I asked it to. The scribble string look (that isn't from a die) might not be in my repertoire.

...and I am submitting to Simon Says Monday Challenge, Red + Pink!




Have a look at what the rest of the Design Team has created to inspire you...

The gold is the perfect accent to this pretty, soft pink! Enjoy your trip!

This is gorgeous. Love the pink with silver. Good to know how fiddly that thread is, because it looks like it would be challenging. But, you nailed it.

Hi Tracey,

I think your card is FAB and I could totally see this being re-created along the lines of a western themed card.

Happy Carding!
Blessings,
Barb

Funny how the most effortless looking things can take the most time to create! Glad you persevered with the string because it's such a fun and funky touch to the heart. :)

Sweet card Tracey!

Jill Norwood said...

Simply gorgeous....even if the gold thread ended up not being so easy!!! Beautiful!!!!!!

KayM said...

It's just beautiful Tracey! I would not even attempt something like this. I can't even tie a bow much less manipulate thread to look that good! haha!

Brandi said...

This turned out simple and elegant! Love the gold thread addition!

Maria said...

Simple, but so very pretty! And, great placement with the gold thread!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Well, look at how many of us already love it, Tracey, so all that time and effort to make it look effortless was worth it! This is the new picture I'm using in my dictionary for the word CASlicious!! Hugs, Darnell

Renee said...

Simply perfect! :)

Jen Mitchell said...

Love! It's fantastically clean and simple and says it all perfectly!

Kim Heggins said...

Tracey, this is just so sweet. Love that heart and to quote Miss Darnell, this is very CASlicious!

Lynn said...

I love the gold thread. Stunning CAS design Tracey.

Happy Dance said...

Gosh Darnell, I mean Tracey, I had to use the "jump to comment form" to get down here, lol! Am working on catching up, and didn't want to let this amazing and beautiful card go by before I had the chance to tell you how wonderful it is. Do keep working with the string, as this sweet added touch is perfect on your card. LOVE this!!! Oh, and having worked with sutures, cut a section, and then grab it at each end. Give a gentle tug to put some tension on it, and it should 'straighten' out a bit.

Kara said...

sweet!

Hazel Hodgkins said...

That gold thread is perfect! Such a lovely card!

Leigh Penner said...
