CASology #22


Welcome to Week 22 of CASology!  Here's the cue card for this week:


The word "Sparkle" always makes me thing of my great-aunt Phyllis' toy poodle named (you guessed it!) Sparkle so I really wanted to make a poodle card this week.  Sadly, my stamp collection is sorely lacking in the poodle department so I had to go with the next thing that sprung to mind:  a snowflake.  I actually don't tend to use a lot of snowflakes (or snowmen, etc) on my cards as we don't have snow here but I kept envisioning a snowflake with gems on it so I broke one out.  My layout was inspired by this card designed by Danielle Walls.  I love how clean and crisp it is and it's a great way to use washi tape.  I added some lace for texture and my sparkle comes from the shiny silver card and the gems on the snowflake and around the sentiment.  Now it's your turn to bring on the sparkle! But first, check out the gorgeous designs by the DT:

what? no poodle stamps? I hope you've ordered one!
I love the layering of the tape & lace - what a great idea!

I'd imagine it would be challenging to use snowflakes and snowmen:)

Your card is wonderful..I love the bit of washi!

Love the use of your washi tape on this! Fabulous layout.

Kelly Griglione said...

Great elements all combined together, especially that lace which I didn't expect to see on a sparkle card!

Terrific card, Jen, love the snowflake sparkle (it almost looks like a buckle it's so dimensional) and the touch of delicate lace is splendid! Thanks for the HM on my card for CASology's 'Time' last week! Anita :)

Lindsey said...

Oh, I am sorely lacking in poodle stamps, too! Whatever is wrong with us? :D (My first pet growing up just happened to be a poodle, even.)
Love this card! That lace adds just that touch of shabby-chicness (?) to your CAS design.
