Just for You...and a Winner!!!

Happy Hump Day everyone!!!
I am posting later than I usually do because I was busy this morning cleaning the boys room's, going through their school supplies list and seeing what I had and still needed to purchase. I have 1 kiddo almost completely ready to head back to school...only missing 1 yellow folder that seems to be sold out everywhere :( I will keep looking in all the stores...someone will have to restock them sooner than later, right????
Then for my other kiddo, I am still waiting on his schedule before going out and getting his supplies because of course some teachers request certain things that the others don't. As soon as we get his list I will finish the supplies shopping. 
Anyways I wanted to pop in and share a card I made for a few challenges and then I have the winner from the Trendy Twine Halloween release to share :)

So for my card I used this week's Designer Challenge from My Creative Time~ which was to use the colors Black and White only
and the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch

and came up with this card.....
I hope you like it!! 
For my card I used a white A2 cardbase and layered black and white cardstock onto my base. Then for the panel, I again layered a piece of black cardstock with my white cardstock but before placing it on my mat, I used the Hexy Background stamp set from My Creative Time and Versamark Onxy black ink. Using scrap designer papers from my stash, I die cut several of the Stitched Hexy Dies to layer onto of my stamped panel. Once the dies were added to my panel, I used some sequins to add a bit some sparkle to my card and stamped my sentiment, following the sketch, using the Gift Card Sentiment stamp set, also from My Creative Time.
So there is my card....what do you think??? CAS which is my favorite based on a fun sketch!

Supplies Used:
Paper~ White, Black
Designer scraps from my stash
Stamps~ My Creative Time~
Dies~ My Creative Time~
Embellishments~ Sequins

  3. Fabulous card - love love the hexagon background. I have to start making my back to school lists! See what we have then get some other things. Only thing that when Emily goes back in there is usually a demand for other things or we got the wrong things, depending on the teacher. Oh well, they will always get used :-) Mine two go back the day after Labour Day :-)

  4. Nice CASEing, the card has quite punch with those hexagons.
    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful paper craft art project with us today at WAW.
