CAS-ual Friday's & Sunday's Bits & Pieces 15


Today i have a quick card for CAS-ual Friday's weekly challenge. I also used paper scraps from my scrap bin, i all i had to do was stamp!

The challenge this week at CAS-ual Friday's is to choose 2 opposite colors on this color wheel:

Of course i went with orange (my favorite color). I'm very picky about my orange, can;t be too yellow or too red. I also hate how a lot of orange comes with blue or pink...i don;t want blue or pink i just want orange!!! But for this challenge had to use blue, so i found some scraps from my favorite pattern paper and this is what happened:

The background paper has a text and poke-a-dot background. I lightly roughed and inked the edges. Then i added some glitter glue on each dot all the way around the panel (the last pic below, shows this the best).

On the blue scallop (it was already cut) i stamped a text background. And on the light blue piece i stamped the birdcage and bird. Last i stamped the word Thanks from the same Hampton Art set.

Last i adhered the birdcage piece flush to the background and then added the scallop, along with a pattern paper scrap on pop up dots.

Thanks for stopping by, i'm off to finish a research paper! (ugh!)
