CASology Week #27


I just had blue on my mind and that is the theme over at the CASology challenge blog this week.

This is going to be a quick post as it is my second of the day and the challenge is closing in just an hour and I want to get to bed!

Here is my card for this challenge:



Paper: cardstock (Rustic Cream - PTI)
Ink: Chipped Saphire, Faded Jeans & Tumbled Glass Distress ink; Archival Jet Black
Stamps: Hero Arts (SPecial Time)
Other: Glossy Accents; Spellbinders Nestabilitie; Dimentional Adhesive

The photography is really bad, I am just not able to get the lighting right for whatever reason.  The dark blue frame, achieved with Chipped Saphire Distress ink,  is popped up with foam tape and covered with lots of Glossy Accents.  As I wanted the clock to be the focal point I went with a sentiment down the outside of the card.  Sometimes it's ok to be different!

That's it from me!  Goodnight!

It's certainly OK to be different. This is one awesome card Brenda. Loved it when I say it on Flickr and it's even better here. The glossy frame is amazing.
