Best Friends


Hi, everyone! Barbara here with a CAS card for you today. First of all, let me echo Kim when I say how fabulous all the eTeam projects were on re-launch day! OMGoodness, what inspiration! I, for one, am really looking forward to seeing what these talented ladies come up with in the future--how about you? And, I want to thank Kim for including me on this amazing team as she starts this exciting journey.

So, on to my card. I'm using this  gorgeous Maya Road Vintage Linen Burlap Rose that doesn't need much of a supporting cast to make a great card. I love a black/white/Kraft/pop-of-color palette so that's what I went with. I didn't want the flower to get lost in the crowd, so I simply die cut the frame from neutral patterned paper, popped it up on Scotch Foam Mounting Tape, added some twine and die cut leaves, and stamped the sentiment. Super simple but that flower makes a BIG impact and steals the show, don’t you think? OK, I'm done with the show biz references now :)

And that's it for me today--thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check back tomorrow to see what the uber talented Broni has for us. I can't wait to see it--it's sure to amaze!

Gorgeous card! I was thinking of hoarding them because they are so sweet but not now I think I may just use them! :)
