My cleanest card: 2S4Y

:-) Yes, this is , I think, the cleanest card I can manage ;-). My cards are never never CAS. It is based on the lovely sketch at my favorite sketch blog, 2 Sketches 4 You


My father-in-law gave me a weird look after seeing this card, and asked, 'Is this all? or are you going to add something more to it?'... Ha ha... Guess they are used to my going over the top with embellishments LOL. I used a gorgeous technique I learnt recently from the WOJ tutorial blog. All these scraps of PP are from one single sheet though :-) And I loved how the card turned out. PLUS I made it in record time - just 30 minutes ;-).

The ice-cream cone clip is a current favorite with me ;-) Check out my Girly Album and you'll know how I am currently crazy after these clips and colored stapling pins.

The Patterned Paper set was a gift from Donna (it is Heidi Grace). Everything else is from my stash.

I hope the 3D effect is visible in the pic :-/

Hugs,
Smita

  20. OOOhhh Smita! This is gorgeous! I know what you mean about CAS cards, but the ruffley goodness here certainly keeps this interesting and fun. (and I'm so happy you're still using the papers). Sorry I've been MIA these days. Been trying to stay off the computer a bit so I can get things done in a more timely manner (and keep the hubby happy!, LOL) Now on to catch up. xxD
