Perfectly CAS - August Challenge


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!

  1. This is so very cute! He does not look very cardinal-like in yellow, does he?

  2. Sorry to comment so late, but I only got home from my trip yesterday.
    This card is very creative. I love thin lines with rows of dots. Your little bird is very cute, perfect for a perfect CAS project. I must add that you colored this bird beautifully with the markers. Great job Jules
