2, 4, 6, 8

July 25, 2013

Hello!
The card I'm sharing today fits a few different challenges...
I typically don't combine challenges, but this time it just kind of all came together.


The challenge over at Cas-ual Fridays is to include numbers.  The chant, "2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate" popped in to my head...  And, so I decided to create a thank you card.

 CFC110: Use a number or numbers on your CAS creation
You have until noon eastern on July 31st.


Next, I chose a color combo from the PTI Blog Hop "Fruits of Summer".  This took awhile with so many wonderful combos to chose from!  Finally the citrus combo came out the favorite, but I ended up dropping the orange from the group...



How to add a sentiment stumped me at first.  The thing was that I didn't want to cover the numbers too much.  Then I drew inspiration from Nicole over at PTI.  I've always liked the look of her vellum sentiment strips, so I thought I'd give it a shot here.  Viola!

Finally, I was inspired by the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch.  
Great sketch, don't you think?
ETA: missed the link deadline (again)



Well, that's all for now...
Thank you so much for stopping by!  
Enjoy hopping & have a fabulous day!

xo,
janelle
