Today I have a VERY CAS card. I wanted to play along with Lisa Arana's Wanna Sketch Challenge #8, because it is awesome. And because she is awesome! She's always got cool sketches, and her sample/inspiration cards will knock you off your feet every time! The sketch has been up for a bit (I love that it is a monthly challenge which allows more time for ideas to brew!) and I had been a little stumped as to what images I was going to use for the focal point. The sketch has been kind of etched in my mind ever since it went up, waiting for the right idea to float into my head.
Fast forward to last night. I was lazy, and I mean lazy. I had a bit of a busy day that kind of tuckered me out a bit. I came home and plopped myself on the couch like a giant slug. I even missed my workout, which I am normally very committed to. And it was raining out - just that kind of day when you want to just hunker down and do nothing. I was so lazy in fact, that I decided at about 5:00 p.m. that I needed a nap. Ridiculous really! But I climbed under the covers, laid my head down, and I was just drifting off to sleep, when BAM, my idea for the sketch popped into my head! Well, naptime was over, and card making time began! It was a very simple idea, which resulted in a very CAS card. I did play around with backgrounds/patterned papers, adding little embellishments like a few stars here and there, but it just looked better plain.
And my card:
Pretty much as CAS as you can get! I even debated not adding the white hand-drawn border on, but I decided to go for it to punch it up a bit. The earth is Paper Smooches (Space Cadets), the moon and the baby hearts are from the Lawn Fawn baby set (some masking required on the moon), the love you is TAWS, and the arrows and the "to the moon and back" are Studio Calico.
Hope you like it! Thanks for taking the time to stop by :)
