A Crafty Friend Like You is a Gift

Edited on 4/28/2018

I’m thrilled that this card was chosen as one of the Top 3 by Through the Craft Room Door Challenge Blog with the following comment from DT Natalie: I really like the mix of monochrome with an inked background and the floral silhouette design. So pretty and elegant.

Thanks so much, DT Natalie. 

Hi Stamping Friends,

I was in a mood to make a mixed media CAS card and this is what I made. I plan to send it to a craft friend whom I haven’t met for quite a while.

I like the contrast element of this card, e.g. black versus white and mixed media versus clean & simple. Hope you like this card too. Thanks for stopping by.

Challenges to Enter

My card style is mixed media CAS. I was inspired by the beautiful spring colors and the flower theme.

  14. The contrast - exactly why I came to tell you how your card caught my eye. I love florals mixed with graphics. And silhouettes on an artsy BG are also a perfect way to achieve that look/feel. Wonderfully done.
