You Are #1


Hi friends!
I had time for this quick card last Sunday and I almost forgot to post it!! It's a pretty loose take on the current CASE this Sketch, you might think it has got nothing to do with it but the idea to use the PTI No Strings Attached set completely rose from the sketch! The sentiments are from one of the newest sets at Avocado Arts. I had to flip the sketch to make room for the sentiments. I "double matted" the card with two tones of reds because I thought it looked fun. :) The #1 is heat embossed with white powder, otherwise there's just plain stamping in this card.

This will also be my third (and last, I was a good girl and read the rules!) entry to Darnell's NBUS Challenge #2. I'm especially happy about this entry because I used TWO NBUS sets, yay!

Have a very nice week everyone! I'm writing this from our neighbour country Sweden where I'm spending some days for work. It's always fun to meet Swedish colleagues and they do have better coffee here! We win the bread-competition though... Then again the Swedes have Ikea and H&M, hmmm... But we have the Santa Claus! Never believe someone who says Father Christmas is from Sweden. TOTALLY FALSE INFORMATION!!

Thanks for popping by! ;)

  15. I'm always so jealous of people who can do such cute clean and simple cards because I have absolutely NO talent with CAS cards. Great job! Thanks for sharing.
