CASology #4


Welcome to week 4 of CASology!  Thanks to all those who played along last week and we hope you're ready to play again!

Here's the cue card for this week:

I hemmed and hawed for ages about what bird stamp to use for my card and finally decided on this neglected Unity image.  The bird cages are adhered at 3 different heights which helps to give some dimension and interest to the card.  Before you leap up to go start your design have a look at the work of the rest of our fabulous design team!

Also our fabulous guest designer:

Link up your creations at the Casology blog and remember that submissions are due by Sunday, 5 August at noon CST.

Supplies Used
Cardstock: (White) Bazzill, (Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Image & sentiment from May 2009 KOM - Another Sweet Day) Unity
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko

This is a great image and sentiment -- you may have to ink it up more often! It's especially effective with the colours and varied dimension.
