Evening Crafters - just a quick post. I started putting this card together last night and I became frustrated with the flourishes and just decided to go to bed. Well I think I finally found the flourishes that I wanted and I think it came out pretty cute!!


Although I don't like to combine challenges I am going to do that today. I want to enter the Less Is More challenge. I really do love their challenges, I just don't get to play as often as I would like. The second is CAS-u-Fridays and the last is The Technique Lover's Challenge.

Less is More - Week 29 - Theme: On the Move. Their challenge is to create a card that is on the move. There is a lot of interpretation here, so I used my new stamp set "Pair-A-Phrase" from Close To My Heart...I just love the bike in this set. It reminds me of my own bike which I call Jello! It's pink and green with flowers all over.

CAS-u-Fridays  Challenge is to use embossing.

Then we have The Technique Lover's Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers - "In CASE you forgot". The challenge here is to go to your favorites folder (which I didn't know existed until recently) and select the oldest card you have in the folder and CASE it. I happened to have one card in the folder. I just love it. Here is the link to the card I CASED by Ctorina.

Please forgive me for combining challenges. I really do like to make cards for each challenge, but with school back in session I want to be able to play along. Thanks for the fabulous challenges.

I appreciate you're stopping by. I hope you enjoy my card.

This is such a pretty card Theresa, although at "Less is More" we do like to see areas of 'white space'on submissions, as ours is solely a Clean and Simple challenge.
Do join us again, we'd love to see your CAS creations.
Thank you so much

Some challenges are just meant to go together, but I know what you mean. I hate seeing a card with a list of 15 challenges it's for.
I'm totally curious - why do you call your bike Jello?? Awesome that you've got a pink bike - me too, pink & silver. It's funny how much little girls love that I have a pink bike :)
