Celebrate Today

Happy Saturday!  I'm here this morning to share two cards I made for the current Embellish Challenge.  The first one, I thought I was going to love...and that is the first one I'm showing you above.  It is very CAS...and just a little two plain for me so I wanted to try again because I loved the color combo.  So...onto try number two!  This is another CAS option...but I like this one much better.  More Basic Grey Oxford papers (look over the last several days and you'll see lots of this paper!)....and lots of stitching (don't look closely at the edges).  I like this take on the color challenge much better.  Hope you have a fabulous day with lots of crafting time!

  4. They are both different for sure, and truly show off your skills, but I happen to love the strong impact on the first. A great masculine card if you ask me!

  5. As a lover of CAS cards I love the first card too, a very striking design:)
    I love the stitching on the second, especially the unfinished edges....adds to the effect:)
