Card Recognition

long and short, just a note




I tend to be long winded, so the "long and short" of this card is the CAS-ual Friday 9x4, embrace the white challenge and the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger.  I drew inspiration from the locker and flower and added a bit embroidery floss on the bottom to tie in the beautiful quilt.  

Materials: PTI Gracias Vases, PTI Happy Trails sentiment, Tim Holtz Core'dinations card stock, water color paper, gray embroidery floss, Tim Holtz Distress ink Tumbled Glass and shabby shutters, Versafine black ink, Encore Ultimate metalic ink

Beautiful long card Erin, great colours together too. I like the way you sponged colour around the edges. That vase is such a delicate image.

So glad you took the long and lean look and going CAS with it was a brave thing to do. Awesome.
