CASology: Week 1 is Here!

Oh!  I’m so excited!  Today is the beginning of weekly challenges over at CASology!  This week’s cue word is SUN and you can interpret it any way you’d like, keeping your card design clean and simple!  Think…sun, flip flops, sunglasses, a sunny sentiment, etc!  Just be creative!

For my card, I chose to focus on sunglasses!  For some reason, I couldn’t help but think of those shiny silver ones that we used to wear when I was a kid!  Do they even make them anymore?  If not, I’m sure they’ll be back on the fashion runways one of these days!

I added some tiny gemstones to the pink pair, but the photo doesn’t show them very well, I’m afraid.  Stickles helped me create the silver sparkle on the lenses, but I’m wondering now if perhaps some silver embossing powder would’ve been a bit more realistic?  Ah well.  They’re still rather fun looking in all their glittered glory!

The design team has been busy creating cards for today and now it’s time to see them!

Hope to see you at CASology this week!

    Shades in the Sun – Sun Shades. Anyway you create it, you can't cover up how cute this card is. A cool design depicting the glare of the Sun. Wonderful Melissa.
