Dream

Hi there!

Monday morning! Hope your Monday is not blue at all!

I am here to share a card I made for the current Cas-ual fridays challenge :

Good Egg... or translated ~ use an oval shape on your card.

*Edited to add ... I've been thinking about the Less is more challenge this week, where the theme is 'round & round'. Chrissie, you said it's open to interpretation... so seeing that one can go round and round in an oval shape too , I am linking up at LIM as well. Long shot maybe, or not ;)

I just love how sometimes a card starts with an  idea, and end up a whole different way!
I wanted to design something that looks like the ripple effect of a drop of water. I started with 3 ovals in 3 shades of blue... but it was just too much.

In the end I used only one of the "layers", and added a simple one word sentiment which was cut with my Silhouette cameo.





The challenges :

                                       



                                  We'd love you to display our banner


May you have a great week!

Thanks for looking!

Wow, heel mooi! De kleuren samen, maar vooral de mooie letters van het woord. De sequins maken het speels.
