A Couple of Challenges


Today I popped over to the Just Us Girls Guest Designer Hannelie's blog, Desert Diva and saw this awesome card;













I loved the graphic feel and the use of acetate.  So, off I went to create my card.

I also noticed [after I made this card] that Hannelie also entered her card in the CASual Friday challenge; use vellum or acetate. I feel my card is different enough, so I am entering mine too.

I was inspired also by the hexagon shape from this necklace on the IC341 challenge site, over at SCS too,  It seems like forever since I played in this challenge!  My hexagon dies are from Lifestyle Crafts, and my sentiment is from Gina K Designs, Birthday Greetings.  My houndstooth bg is from SP & Company, Houndstooth Background.

Have a great week end everyone - I am off to go swimming [in my pool] - it is finally warm enough to get in it!

Thanks for stopping by~

Fabulous case, but different, like you said! I love the hexagon and the houndstooth peeking through! Two of my faves: hexagons and houndstooth!

Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at CAS-ual Fridays!

I have never used acetate on a card....yours is SO cool!

And your pool is warm enough to swim in now - hooray! I thought with you being in AZ that it would be warm year round. We see the temps on TV and boy do they look hot!
