Hello Again


 Casual Fridays has a really great challenge this week. I met up with Michele Gross, owner of Casual Friday's blog, and Tenia Nelson last weekend at Archiver's and we brainstormed. We laughed a bunch! Sadly, we didn't take a picture so you can't see how cute they are. Well, Tenia made 2 cards for the upcoming Paper Crafts Call and I spent most of the time picking Michele's brain. She has something coming up and it is KILLING ME not knowing!

**Edited to add: other than the die cut sentiment, this is not anything we brainstormed, but we did decide that getting a silhouette was definitely in our future.

I came home after a week away and went finally to work to create a card for the challenge which was to create a card inspired by your blog header.

I have a ton of bling.


But why waste packaging?

Inserted some sand to get that BEACHY vibe and sealed up the corner extra tight.


and Voila! my Beachorado inspired card! See the sand? Kind of a shaker card of sorts.



Thanks!!! Not much time to chat, the deadline is approaching!

  11. How fun! I've never been to Archiver's! I think I would have to hide my wallet lol! Your card is super cool - love the sand! Perfection! At first, I thought you were going to color the pearls to mimic the dots on your header, but the scale of the buttons is much better. :o)
