Casology : Move

Hi there !

Time to announce this week's cue at Casology :

                                                        

When you're on the move, you need a design that's easy and quick to replicate ! This card came together in about 15 minutes, design time (in Silhouette studio) included.

The birds , the cages and the branches are all different letters from the same Dingbat font called doodle-dings-1-birds-cages.

As you can see I used the branches and cages only as printables, but applied an offset cutting line to the birds to pop them up and add some interest.
I added my sentiment (font : cookies & milk ) and adhered the top layer over a polka dot BG of patterned paper.

I had to sit on my hands to avoid adding a pop of color somewhere, but after the photo was taken I decided I like the B&W just as it is!

This week's sponsor is Cindy B designs.

I am adding my link to the challenge at Less is more, where we are to use DP in a CAS style.

Thanks for visiting me today... I can't wait to see how you will interpret the cue card this week!

Hugs
Hannelie

Ag, vrou, is dit nou nie weer net eenvoudig briljant nie, jong!!!!! Van die een pragtige koutjie na die ander een - so slim gedoen en net te fraai!!!!! En dit werk perfek so in die swart en wit en die polka dots wat so uitloer om die kante gee sommer baie ekstra lewe aan die kaartjie!!! Daai voeltjies is net te oulik vir woorde en die hele ontwerp is so treffend en goed gedoen!!! Laat my breed glimlag!!!!!
Groete, vrou en 'n heerlike Woensdag!!!
