Hello and Happy Saturday to ya! Thanks for all of the birthday wishes yesterday. It was overall a good day. I got my ticket to the Papertrey Retreat in July, got my hotel reserved, had cupcakes from Gigi's, and hung out with Ava and my Mom.
Today, I have a card I made for this week's CAS-ual Friday's challenge which was to use color block. Ok, so this challenge is the one every week that TOTALLY makes me pull my hair out because I am such an overdoer on my cards sometimes. The patterned paper, the ribbon, the buttons..I love all of those little things and they just don't work (for me) on CAS cards cause i'd have 20 on there instead of 2...lol. This week, though, I think I achieved the CAS look that has alluded me these last few weeks. I absolutely adore this card (can I say that??)
These colors are just so fabulous together. I love the combination so much. I got it from a Louis Vuitton bag that I love. Let me tell you, though. When I first made this card, it had clear card stock covering the entire front because the inspiration bag was patent leather. It was so cute...until I tried to photograph that sucker. Ok, I did not realize that I could take 26 pictures of one card and still not come up with anything usable! The clear card stock acted as a mirror and in each picture you could either see me, the camera, the fireplace, the blinds..ugh..it was a nightmare. In the end, I decided to strip off the clear card stock and go au naturel with it...LOL.
Well, that's it from me. Hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!
