CCEE Stampers-Happy News
Before I tell you about my card, I want to announce that I've been asked to join a fun and very talented group of ladies at CCEE Stampers ( Cheers & Challenges Eclectic Ensemble). I know I'll enjoy working with this wonderful group and am anxious to get started.
Frances Byrne, our 'downunder' member, let us know today is Australia Day and challenged us to do an Aussie related card. Some of the options she gave us are to use the colors green and gold, create a beach scene as Aussies love their beaches, Australian animals, thongs (the kind you wear on your feet), etc.
As you can see, I went with the colors green and gold and made a CAS card. I am using a Cheery Lynn Designs lace rose and flourish die. I thought at 9 1/2" long, the die would be too much for a card but I've found several ways to use it. On this card, I have cut two ends and wrapped them around the corner and added a Prima. If I had not cut it, there would be a beautiful rose at the end. The sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company and is included in the set, Happy Pansies.
Hope you'll check out the cards from the rest of the team and join us for our Aussie challenge found here.
