CASology #3


Wowsers!!  100 entries for our Happy challenge at CASology last week!  There were so many fantastic cards submitted and I really had a hard time with picking my favourite. Thank you all for making my job difficult and keep those entries coming!  LOL!


Here's the cue card for this week:



The orange images and sentiment are from Purple Onion Designs and I confess that they've been sitting uninked for almost a year now.  Thanks to Melissa for giving me a reason to dig them out and use them!  I used a rug stamp from Paper Smooches Vogue Abode set to create the shadow under the oranges so they didn't look like they were just floating in midair.  And, of course, I threw in some gems.  :)  Go check out the other ladies on the team to see their fabulous takes on the cue word:





Also our fabulous Guest Designer:


And when you're done with that get to work on your entry for this week!  Link up your creations at the CASology blog and remember that submissions are due by Sunday, 29 July at noon CST.

Very sweet and fun card. Love the shadow under the oranges--thanks for pointing that out. I saw it, but I didn't 'see' it, and now I get it.

Love that perfect shadow underneath them - it's those teensy details that make your stuff so WOW :) Fabulous! (and now, what fruity item can I use? hmmmm....)

Jen, I love this adorably "sweet" card! What a perfect stamp and sentiment to use! I have that POD set, and would have used it, but I'm out of town.

Lindsey said...

I really like how you used the Vogue Abode stamp to anchor the oranges, and the rich colours you used. Awesome!
