CASology # 1

I've made a couple of quick cards for the brand new challenge blog, CASology.  Each week there will be a challenge to create a CAS card based on a single cue word.  The word for this week is sun

I used Hero Arts Sky's the Limit and made two cards.  I'm not overly thrilled with either of them but decided to post anyway.  The blue cardstock is impressed with my new PTI canvas impression plate.  So excited to finally have this as it had been out of stock the last few times I ordered.  I added a little glitter glue to the sun for some sparkle.



Thanks for visiting!
Ann

Aww, what a sweet sentiment! I love your sparkly sun - I especially love the white one and how you made just part of the card be the sky (although they're both perfectly wonderful - I have an affinity for white!!). Thanks so much for playing along with CASology this week!

Hmmm.... I really can't decide which one of these I like best, Ann. It's amazing how just a few simple changes can give you such totally different cards! Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!

You are always too critical of your work, Ann! These are both adorable and perfect! That glittery sun is stunning! I WANT that sentiment for cards to send to friends who need a boost. Thanks, as always, for being inspirational.

Both of your cards are fantastic Ann. Of the two my favorite is the first. I like the blue vertical strip representing the sky with focal image and complimenting each other in opposite locations. My eye starts at the top left, travels down the blue vertical panel and then to the right bottom corner with a nice ending. Very nice design.

Susie said...

Whoops, sorry Ann, I've left two comments. However, my last comment gives you a better idea why the first card was my favorite. Also: I meant to type (the focal image and sentiment complimenting ... ) Little easier to understand written that way.
