CAS Lucky Me


This is my take on a really Clean and Simple card.  These cards are so much more challenging for me than one with lots of layers.  I always feel like I need to add more.  With St. Patty's Day right around the corner, I was going with a different spin on a card for the one I love.  The sentiment says it all for me.  I am so LUCKY to have found the most wonderful man that I call my husband.  Don't get me wrong, neither of us are perfect, but we are perfect for each other.

I wanted to try a chevron pattern and used my zig zag punch to create that pattern.  I used a die cut and couple of  circle punches to make the sentiment.  A little green bling is the finishing touch.


Recipe:
Stamps - Sentiment (Studio G)
Paper - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and white card stock, Amber Autumn (DCWV)
Ink -  Bamboo Leaves (Memento)
Misc - Zig Zag punch (ek Success), Label Four dies (Spellbinders), gemstone crystal bling.

I entered my card in the following Challenges:
Lollipop Crafts - White with a splash of color
Card Caravan - Lucky Green
Cupcake Inspirations - Photo Inspiration
Simply Create Too - I'm So Lucky
Our Craft Lounge - Photo Inspiration
CropStop - Rainbow of Colors

Sunshine & Smiles to You!
