Lots of numbers

Three CAS cards and a Kenny K for you today. Yes, I'm still flirting with the CAS style and the more I try it, the more I like it. I know these are plain, but they look fab irl. Look at all that white space! That would have made me shudder a few months ago - but I'm getting used to seeing white now.

Now, this Kenny K card may look a bit strange. Is it really suitable for a 60 year old? You bet it is in this case. One of our friends turned 60 last week and he still behaves like he is still in his 20's. He loves music, so this drummer image was spot on for him.

So, what's with all the numbers? The One Stop Craft Challenge this week is all about numbers. I made the CAS style cards as DT items for the numbers challenge. There are a couple of changes over at the challenge. Not only will a top 3 be picked along with the prize winner each week, but there will also be a chance each week to become a guest designer. So lots of ways to win with the OSCC.

I'm also entering them into the following challenges:

Paperplay challenge - Stamp it out
My Time To Craft - Flourishes (the paper pricking)
Sew Many Cards - Anything Goes

These cards are so easy to do and they would be suitable for a birthday, or if you pick the right colours, they are also suitable for an anniversary card.

The paper pricked swirl adds just a hint of texture.

Items used:
Stempleglede grunge heart
Marianne Designs brass template
Prima e-line pearls
Various ribbons from my stash.
Sizzix alphabet die for the numbers (I think it is Curlz)

Please take a look at the cards that the rest of the amazing DT have made - they are brilliant.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
