Sweet Stamps- Sweet and Simple

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is Sweet and Simple
  I love this great silhouette image- I stamped and embossed it and added some shimmer and a jewel. The Banner Technique is from the Technique Junkies Newsletter. I used Prima Almanac DP for the banner. I am not good at CAS, but I needed some 'balance' so I added some piercing at the top, and a strip of embossed cardstock across the menu- then I stopped......  Oh CAS- I think I pulled it off.....

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:

Very striking card. Love the sparkle.

Wonderful CAS card. Love the piercings at the top. It's perfect with this adorable silhouette.

Krisha said...

Good Job! I think you pulled it off rather good. CAS is hard to do when we are so used to "piling-it-on" I am trying to lighten-up on all the "add-ons" and do more CAS.

You definitely pulled this one off. I love the banner. And if you wanted to add a sentiment it could go across the top of your banner. Love the piercing too. Really finishes it off!
