I won a CAS-ual Fridays prize this summer at the Card Chain Challenge. I could pick anything and I liked Peaceful Garden. Gail sent me a friend die too (if interested, see it used here) - thanks again, Gail! Next thing you know I was back shopping there and bought companion sets of Peace and Comfort & Garden Fri-dies. I die cut a flower and 2 leaves from the Fri-die set, then stamped the Peace and Comfort sentiment on a panel die cut with a stitched rectangle. The sentiment's letters have lots of open areas that I filled in with a black Sharpie. The plain stamped panel looked very unfocused and I was having trouble finding a good spot for the flower. Lightbulb, as Virginia (Yes, Virginia) would say - I pulled out some Honey Bee thin frames my friend Betty (created by bjk) sent me and found the perfect black one. The frame added the right touch, I thought - thanks again, Betty!! I popped the flower into one corner and some gems into the other 3 corners - done! BTW Betty, you enabled me - I bought the HB die set, plus the gems, when I was in Arizona back in August. Not that I need to use them yet since I have plenty from you!! 😇😇
My card's going to the current Watercooler Wednesday where Tristan is hosting Anything Goes with a Feminine Twist. I'm also adding to Darnell's December NBUS challenge since my CAS-ual Fridays sets are getting first play.
Thanks for stopping & have a crafty day!
