My Apologies 46

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, March 1, 2011 @ 11:27 PM | , ,

Hi there! Thanks to those who stopped by and left a sweet comment or two on my Waltzingmouse Stamps preview posts over the past several days :) I am so happy to hear so many of you are as excited about the release as I am! Today, I have a CAS card of sorts to share:
If you visit here often, you know how challenging a CAS card is for me! I love to lay it all on thick! I love lots of embellishments such as flowers, pearls, lace, buttons, bows, etc......   I think the My Mind's Eye Lush Collection patterned paper is so elegant and classy. All I did was add a label from Very Vintage Labels No. 4  and the "My Apologies" sentiment from Say It With Style. For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's sketch challenge over at the clean & simple stamping blog:
Not much to see close up except the popped up sentiment for a bit of dimension and the fabulous unique embossed edges that Spellbinders™ die templates are known for :)
That's all I have to share with you today Thanks so much for looking! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Say It With Style, Very Vintage Labels No. 4
Die Templates and Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-190 Labels Four, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye Lush Collection

For those of us who struggle to do 'shabby chic' this is so refreshing because it's a simpler leap to the other side so to speak. Still a very beautiful card too. TFS.

Hey Mona! I think your CAS card is perfect! I know what you mean about overdoing. I have been cutting back on my cards the last month and I think I might have forgot how to embellish. I seem to be on a simple kick. Anyhow, your card is beautiful and hope you are doing well! :-) Amy
