Destination: CASology

Time for a new cue word challenge over at CASology and, this week, we’re going places with the word TRAVEL!  At least, some of us are.  It seems my mind didn’t take me much farther than, well, my mind.  Luckily, the lid of my box opened just far enough for me to escape (a.k.a. “think outside the box”)!  Here’s where my mind took me…

Stamps:  CTMH (arrow), Taylored Expressions (sentiment)
Paper:  SU CS (Brushed Silver, Basic Black), Paper Trey CS (white)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Accessories:  clear gemstones, foam dots, corner rounder

I couldn’t resist using a Dr. Seuss quote, especially one that goes along with the cue word!  Besides, May is coming up rather quickly and that means graduations will soon be here!  I need to have a card ready…just in case!

I kept the design very simple, using a basic layered panel in the middle of my card base, popping up the arrow and rounding one corner.  The gemstones I added just for that little extra bit of pizzazz!

I hope you’ll visit the blogs of CASology’s design team and guest designer this week!  They’ve come up with some fantastic inspiration for the cue word!  Then, don’t forget to link up your own creation by Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CDT)!

 
 
 
Have a terrific Tuesday!
