CASology #160: Number

It’s time for another CASology Challenge:

Birthdays were my first thought for this cue, but then I remembered this phrase:

So, I went with that!  I find an increasing amount to be grateful for!

This card is approx. 4 1/4″ square, so not a lot of room. To add a bit of interest to this little CAS card, I made the sentiment my focal image, but added a couple of leaf shapes behind the front panel. This provides a bit of depth without overcrowding the card. It also gave me an excuse to try out my new Wink of Stella Gold brush pen that I was lucky enough to win from MUSE Christmas Visions! The leaf image I used is an outline stamp, so the gold brush added some solid gold sparkle. Love it!!

  1. This is a clever way to interpret the cue word. Love your two layers and those leaves tucked behind your front panel. It really pulls everything together.

  2. Yes! Thanks a MILLION is perfect! (Why didn’t I think of that!) I never have enough thank you cards on hand — I do like to send them and I LOVE this design, especially the gold embossing. Gorgeous, as always!

  3. Sparkly fabulousness and perfect for the Time Out challenge! Love the addition of the pink in the banner. 🙂
