Have a spectacular day !

Hi there!

Don't you just love it when you see a challenge and know instantly which direction to go?

Well it happened with this week's CASOLOGY challenge! And now I have to confess, it was actually the moment I saw Ardyth's inspration card!

So ...Ardyth, thank you so much for sparking my imagination with your card!

I will also link my card to the  CAS sponging challenge at Happy Little Stampers.




Well the 'spectacular' made me think: glasses... sunglasses !

The frame were cut with my Silhouette cameo, as well as the palm tree. The sunset was sponged using a variety of Tim Holtz, and Hero arts distress inks.

The sentiment is my own, and you are welcome to use it:









Thanks so much for visiting me today!

What a cool card Hannelie! I've seen a lot of cards lately that are using glasses of some type, but can't afford to buy all those different dies. I just need to spend more time learning my Silhouette so I can create masterpieces like yours!
