We have a new prompt up at the Perfectly CAS challenge blog. This month we'd like you to incorporate stripes and/or dots on your card.
Remember that the guidelines state that you should only use 1/3 of your card in the design.
Being the overachiever that I am *wink* I opted to use both stripes and dots in my design.
I began but first stamping the trio of narrow lines along the bottom third of my card. I used a stitching die to create the cut out circles that run parallel to the lines. I die cut the bird in white, colored it in with Copic markers, adhered it to the bottom right of my card leaving just enough space for the tiny sentiment. I felt like it needed a bit of embellishment so I opted for a few dots of clear glossy accents. They add just a little without distracting from the focal point. I would have preferred a smaller focal image but overall I think I kept within the 1/3 guideline for my design.
I invite you to visit our blog and hope you'll join us this month. We'd love to see your card in our gallery!
