Lacy Hello

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

And here is my take:

Lacy Hello | by karen h @ carefree creations

I had a few ideas for this challenge, but when I went searching through my dies, I found this die and immediately decided to change direction and make this card. The funny thing, to me, is that I bought that die for the two frame bits and figured I’d never actually use the floral inside!

I loved the idea of the blended ink showing through the lacy floral openings. With the very limited layers, this stays quite clean & simple!

This is definitely one of my favorite cards!

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
