It was later at night and pitch black outside when I decided that my card needed a "little something extra". Sneaking outside, I walked in the dark across our lot in search of some dried grass. All of a sudden a spotlight shone on me and I immediately began to panic. I was ready to explain to the policeman that it was ok-that this was my yard and I wasn't trespassing. Then I heard a tiny voice "Mama, I came out to help you look for your card things." My littlest slowly approached with a flashlight in his hand, my heart calmed and a smile spread across my face. Together, we found the perfect grass for my card.
CAS-ual Fridays Challenge has teamed up with the sketch challenge site Clean and Simple Stamping! Create a clean and simple card based on the sketch and link it up at either site! For more details on the challenge, challenge rules, prize information from Clear Dollar Stamps and fabulous samples from the Girl Fridays, please visit the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog! We are welcoming a truly fabulous clean and simple designer, Angeline Young, as a guest designer this week!
I've decided that I need to start using some patterned paper that I've collected over the years. I let the design and colors of the paper dictate the direction of the embellishments... I found some "card hardware" (after dusting it off slightly) and natural dried wheat grass to complete the rustic look.
So, can't wait to see your interpretation of the sketch!
