A Banner – Clean and Simple

Hello friends,

Once in a while I try my hand on a CAS card although it is one of the most difficult genres in card making for me to do.  I saw this sketch at the new challenge blog CAS[E] this Sketch Challenge and decided to  give it a go. The sketch:

Here is my take on the challenge. I used washi tape to make the banner and added a little bling flower. The sentiment is from Whimsy stamps.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Project details:

  • White cardstock
  • Whimsy sentiment “Birthday Letter Seals”
  • Tim Holtz distress ink “Worn Lipstick”
  • Washi tape
  • Bling flower

Enjoy your day and thanks for visiting my blog. I love to read your comments and appreciate each of them so much.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

    Stunning in it’s simplicity Amelia!
    It must have taken a lot of self restraint to stop at this point…..lol!
    Well done, you certainly CAS[E]d the sketch very well.
    Good luck with the challenges.
