US187 & CAS22

Quick post today. But I have some good news to share. My card was chosen as the winner of the 10 Minute Craft Dash, week #7. I'm quite delighted! Wow. There were some very lovely cards, and I am very honored to be among such company. Check out the site on the link above and feel free to leave those wonderful crafters some comments on your favorites!

Today's card will be uploaded to CASology #22, Sparkle and to Unscripted Sketches #187. Another great cue card at CAS, and another really fun sketch at US. Be sure to stop by both places, and play along!


Bazzill white & black cardstock. Random scraps of glitter paper, and a random ribbon. PTI's sentiment from Birthday Basics with SU ink. Santa has promised that there will be a light box under the tree for me this year. I have been very, very good.  ; )

Oh! This is such a FUN take on this week's cue word! LOVE those sparkly stripes and the way you used circles! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week! :)

Love this to bits! The colors are fabulous. Keeping the horizontal, vertical and circle stripes the same wideth really creates a well balanced design. Thanks for choosing our Unscrited Sketch to showcase this wonderful card :)

Thanks Ardyth. Perfect cue card for the holiday season, only I don't make too many Christmas cards anymore. This will work for an upcoming birthday though! Bev

Happy Dance said...

Thanks Caroline. It wasn't what I had pictured in my head, but I do like the way it turned out. Bev

Happy Dance said...

Thanks Mynnette. The colors do look "happy" together, don't they! I'm not a big fan of glitter paper, but this did turn out alright. Thanks for stopping by. Bev

Happy Dance said...

Thanks Tracey. At this time of year, one normally thinks of sparkle and Christmas, but I wanted to go in another direction. CASology is just too much fun! Bev

Happy Dance said...

Thanks Melissa. My goal is 'happy', and this color combination made me feel that way. CASology is a great challenge blog; the DT always has fresh and fab ideas!

Happy Dance said...

Thanks Geri. Once again, you've said something that I didn't even think about. I guess my eye just does it. Great sketch again at US! Your DT creates wonderful inspirations! Bev

Thanks, Debbie. As to the colors, I needed more than red and green, for at least one card this season. ;) Your DT really has fun sketches to play with! Bev

Happy Dance said...
