CCC #203

IMG_0283

it's time for a new cue card at CASology!

This week`s new cue is:


I used two new to me stamp sets from Stamplorations for my card--Groovy Shoes and Strong Women. Strong Women I won from designer Becca Cruger when the set was first released. I first die cut my panel, then I stamped the sentiment, the image and coloured the shoes. I cut a piece of glitter paper to mat the panel with only a 1/8" border. The panel was popped up with foam tape for a bit of dimension.

Now my daughter and I agreed to disagree whether this works as a card of congratulations or not. I see it as congratulations I hope you celebrate by dancing like no one is watching or maybe if you were congratulating someone on a new job that they will flourish in their new position. My daughter gave me the okay with a question mark--ha ha ha! What do you think?

Love the fine border of glitter paper which adds that little bit of pizzazz to a lovely CAS design.

Another of your terrific CAS cards Tracey!! Love the bit of sparkle peeking out and the mixed fonts on the sentiment. I had to laugh at your discussion of the card with your daughter!! I say anyone that could walk successfully (let alone dance!) in shoes like this deserves a congrats ~ LOL!!!
