Count me in... take 2!

Hi there!

With 2 weeks to play in this week's Cas-ual fridays challenge... My head was going round & round ... thinking of another way to use a number(s) on a card.

I fell in love with this beautiful cast iron bench die the moment I saw it. Got it.... but couldn't come up with an idea with a card for it!

That has changed ;)


This truth is something I learned with our move to Abu Dhabi...

One day at a time...




My sentiment made to share:


I used the color inspiration from Jackie's color challenge... Grade jade, from the Pantone spring 2013 collection

Thanks for visiting me today!
Have a great week!

This is simply beautiful. Love the one rounded corner; it just emphasizes the curves in the bench. Just a beautiful card. Great take on the challenges too! Wonderful. Bev

Wow - this die is amazing! You created the absolute perfect font for the sentiment - the script works so well with the curved lines of the bench! Beautiful colors! I'm calling Winner, winner again dear friend!

PS I will be picking up my Portrait this weekend! I took Monday off as a holiday day so I could stay home and play!!!

Thanks for the gorgeous sentiment!
