CFC35 and ric#3

The CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use scallops on a CAS card fit perfectly with what I was already planning to do - make some simple late Christmas thank you cards using scraps from my scrap box.  Two of the Girl Friday cards use a similar layout with a strip or strips of paper along the bottom of the card.  Love them!

For my first card I chose a gray argyle scrap and gray twine to finish it off.  I don't think the sentiment is perfect, but I felt it was the best of the choices I had. 


This one uses some leftover Christmas scraps.  I'm not loving this one as much.


As I was going through my scraps I came across this black and white paper.  Normally I would have passed it by, but the black and white geometric shapes reminded me of the Runway Inspired Challenge I've seen floating around in blogland.  So I tried it . . . and it's my favorite of the three!

Fabulous Ann! And what a great way to use up the scraps. The first one is my favourite - I love all those soft colours and the twine.

I love all 3 of these! The simple layout looks so different by changing the papers! This is a classic card.
