We've got a challenge at CAS-ual Fridays that many of you have a lot of experience with ... sequins and chevrons! Probably not a big stretch, right? But I was surprised at how slow I was getting started. It's a very general challenge with not a lot of direction, and I typically find those the most challenging. So many possibilities of where to go.
This challenge is graciously sponsored by Ellen Hutson, and the winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to spend there!
In the end I decided to go with a text-based card again. I had a blast getting out several different alpha sets (five are used here) and playing around with font choice and color. The chevrons, from CAS-ual Fridays Rad set, make up a portion of the "u" and point, well, up! The sequins are silver stars that I've had for decades, literally.
I used two layers of mat board underneath to give it dimension, so you know this one is not destined for the postal service. I've just decided that I want all my cards to have panel of patterned paper on the inside, and am really excited about that! I've got miles of paper (from buying them in packs of 25 at our local discount stores) that I seriously need to start making a dent in otherwise I think our upstairs floor may start bowing. I've also been making envelopes for each card with the patterned paper and am in love. More about that later : )
Thanks so much for looking, and hope to see you in the gallery!
