CFC91--Hi Ho Silver


Happy Friday!  Who's ready for the weekend?  I hope you'll find time for something fun, perhaps even a challenge or two.  :)

This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge:  use silver on your clean and simple creation.  I rarely reach for metallics, so I really enjoyed the push to do something different.


Despite the fun challenge, it's also a sad week at CAS-ual Fridays, as we're saying farewell to several Girl Fridays.  They all have exciting things in their future, so we're sure to keep seeing their incredible creations in the blogosphere, but they will be greatly missed at CAS-ual Fridays.  :(  I hope you'll take some time to visit each of them to wish them well!

As for my card this week, I couldn't resist using some silver glitter paper on my card base.  The white panel was stamped repeatedly with a border from Mama Elephant's Trifecta in aqua.  I added a sentiment from WPlus9's Heartfelt Mix, some silver cord, and a few silver sequins.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Glitter paper: Michaels
Stamps:  Mama Elephant (Trifecta), WPlus9 Design Studio (Heartfelt Mix)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Pool Party), Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Tool:  Fiskars (hole punch)
Accessories:  silver cord, sequins

I can't wait to see your entry in the gallery!

Thanks for visiting today, friends!  Have a great start to your weekend.

Perfect Christina! Love the way you used the sequins just as is… I probably would have added something on top but love that you did not!

Stunningly gorgeous card, Christina!
Love your use of silver (oh... I have little addiction for sequins, lately.. so I **love** your use of silver sequins on the card!) and what a great idea to create notches for the twine!!!
Thanks for the inspiration!

So in love with this, Christina! Your aqua is the perfect compliment to the silver and shine. And your sequins are so perfectly placed! I adore everything about this card (not to forget the two notches on each side of the string!)
