Guest Designing at Addicted to CAS

I was surprised and thrilled by the invitation to Guest Design at Addicted to CAS.  As soon as I read the code word, MUSIC I knew I wanted to use a large die cut that just happens to be the name of a popular song, and a sheet music stamp

My supplies include :1 Die (Hello from W&W) and 1 Background Stamp judiciously masked and stamped (MFT's Sheet Music), 3 Red PPP sequins in the 4mm size, and some card stock.

This card evolved, first I had just the white die, and it was  well  meh.  Next, I added the dark gray layer as a shadow to the hello, a bit better than meh but not much.  Then I knew it needed a pop of red, and voila I love the card as much as Adele's song.  It goes to show, an initial design idea can need some tweaking to match the impact the design had while you were formulating it in your mind.

I made a second card as well.

The challenge runs two weeks, give it a try!

My heartfelt thanks to Barb at Addicted to CAS for the invitation to guest design!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
