CAS50 -- By Brandon

Brandon (my 10 year old -- see I didn't say my little one, even though he is) created a card for the CAS challenge last week. He was so tickled with all the comments he received here and at my gallery on SCS. He wanted to thank each and everyone of you that commented on his card. I also want to thank you -- it made his day. The kids were off school, and I didn't think he was going to want to do a card again -- but I was wrong.

This card was designed by Brandon with a little help from me. He liked my card (which you can see here), but he wanted to do a group of hearts-- "like a bunch of balloons". That meant him using my Cuttle bug with my new Heart embosslit -- can you say PANIC. Then he wanted to use my BRAND NEW Shades of Spring DP (Gasp). Then to top it off he wanted to use this velvet ribbon (retired SU) to tie the bunch together. Do you know how hard it is to tie velvet ribbon? Well this is the card that we came up with.

I forgot to mention before that the idea to punch out the hearts and put them through the embosslit came from my friend LeAnne (thanks sweetie). We were REALLY careful with my embosslit Click here to see why. This also is for the Challenge this week at the Little Paper Shop -- we were to use buttons on our cards.

Thanks for stopping by,
Corie

Elaine said...

Wrong wording on my comment...I meant which SU set did that ribbon come from? Sorry!
