CFC #21

Happy Sunday to you!  Today is a restful day for us in the Washington household.  We took Picard (our two year old) to the zoo for the first time yesterday.  He wanted to actually climb the fences and co-habitate with the animals.  It was priceless!  That experience yesterday made me realize that I don't celebrate the joy of life enough.  I mean, sure I celebrate birthdays or special occasions but, I'm referring to rejoicing in the drives to work, the lunch breaks with friends, watching a movie with the hubby and phone conversations with mom (that was a HUGE run-on...it's my blog and I can run on if I want to...LOL!).  So, I decided to create a celebration card to remind me of what I should be doing.

This week's CAS-ual Friday's challenge is to create a three color, monochromatic card that includes the color brown as well.  I had some cameo silhouettes just sitting around from another project that I created some time ago.  I'm glad I saved them because they became a great stencil.  I used three different orange inks from SU!  I then added orange necklace and earring accents.  I also used a border punch to create a hair accessory.  I topped it all off with a sentiment from Technique Tuesday that says "celebrate". I stamped that in PTI's "Dark Chocolate".  Hope you dig it!  Here are the juices and berries:



See ya soon!

Lovely Cameo card Rochele. It reminds me of the famous "Girl With the Pearl Earring"!

What a beautiful way to mix those colors. I love the addition of the single pearl as an earring. Thank you so much for playing along at CAS-ual Fridays this week.

Wow Rochelle- this card is awesome! I have trouble making monochromatic cards. I feel like I just can't get enough "oomph" in them, lol. But this is wonderful! I love the simplicity- mixed with the bling! Really fantastic!
