I wanted my card today to be CAS with a bit of style and sophistication... this is my attempt of that. The papers are all left over from another card that I was working on, one with a totally different vibe, but I liked the idea of changing up the proportions and seeing how they looked in a new way. One thing I can say... there is a lot of yellow going on here, LOL!
I printed out the Lazy Day Kaylee digi, because with her cool hair and fab ensemble, she had just the style I was looking for. And because the design was so simple I thought that a significant looking sentiment was needed to go with Kaylee. But none of the stamps in my stash were working for me. It was getting a bit frustrating but then as I was digging around under my desk, I came across my old Quickutz dies. Hmmm... I unzipped the binder and started flipping through all those alpha dies that haven't been used in years and came across Uptown Girl. Talk about perfect! So I experimented with running the dies through my Cuttlebug and it was such a success that I'm thinking that these old dies may be having a bit of a come back on my future projects. ;)
Ok, time for me to get myself ready for work.
