GRUNGE AT ADDICTED TO CAS !


Hi lovely friends, followers and crafters - I hope you have had a happy fortnight, and are ready to get out your stamps and join in our new challenge!
****** 
A few days ago, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Kylie, Sandie, Sue, Val, Monika and Marina, whilst I was on a short break in London.  We had lunch together (and lots of laughter!)  at the St. Martin-in-the-Fields Cafe in the Crypt - a truly fantastic day!
****** 
 So - onto our new ATCAS challenge! Your Hostess is our lovely leader, Kylie, and her choice of Code Word is .............

I used:-
The Memory Box Honey Comb stencil and Distress Inks.
A sentiment from the Stampin' Up "Happy Day" set.
Memory Box "Pippi" Butterfly die.




Our generous Sponsor, Bugaboo Digi Stamps, are offering our CAS Perfectionist a pack of 7 digis from their store.

Happy Crafting ~

Nice card Sylvia, I love the stencil effect but I'm not very adventurous when it comes to trying things out, don't really know where to start with them. I suppose start simple and take it from there is the answer! Hope you're having a good weekend.

Hugs Vicki x

Hi Poppy,

I can't get over your card - I think the shade is so pleasing to the eye, I like how you faded it off. The delicate butterfly is such a gorgeous touch. Lovely sentiment. Voila, a masterpiece which will be a nice display for the lucky recipient.

Blessings,
Barb

Jaydee said...

Sylvia, I love how you centered the focal on the top left hand corner, I never do that, but your card shows me how stuck in my ways I am. I love it. I also love the orange, black and white color scheme and that whimsical butterfly adds a touch of lightness to the grunge feel. Gorgeous
