CC&S #369 – Best Wishes

You still have a day or so to join the current CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

And here is my take:

Best Wishes | by karen h @ carefree creations

Better late than never?

Honestly, this is such a lovely color combo (and the hostess, Wei, made such a beautiful card) that I was inspired to make a card, even if late.

Any time I see a terracotta color, I always think of potted plants.

I tried something a little different for me. I used this sweet frame, that also cuts a stitched rectangle, to emboss on the card base as well as making a (3-layer) frame.

I stamped the images using some rock-n-roll (all the same color, but just multiple layers to add depth/shadows). even the sentiment has a gradient going on.

The rhinestone was colored with an alcohol marker.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This colour combo totally stumped me but you have rocked it! Your gradient inking is gorgeous and I love the layout – the offset frame is very cool. I may be CASEing that in the future!
