A Wisp of Silver

Hi everyone,

This week's CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is to create a CAS project that has a touch of silver. So, I thought this might be a perfect time to return to a couple of the challenges posted during last weekend's OWH VCMP.

Those of you who joined in the fun may remember the card at the right. It combined two of the challenges: a multi-layered card in only white and/or cream and a glitter-flee glitz/glam card.

As much as I loved the card, I was concerned that it may not be very mail-friendly for our heroes to send home. So, I decided to use this CAS-ual Friday challenge as an opportunity to make a more mail-friendly version.

(Sorry the image isn't brighter, but it's pretty clear -- and an accurate representation of the colors.)

I just love the elegance of these white-on-white and cream-on-cream cards. Talk about some lovely wedding and anniversary cards. While this silvery version would be perfect for a 25th anniversary, it would be so easy to change colors to commemorate other milestone anniversaries.   :)

Parting Thoughts

Planning on working on some Mother's Day cards tonight -- and maybe piecing together a few more patriotic hearts. Hoping to make an Any Hero card tomorrow using OWH's weekly sketch.

Thanks for visiting and happy scrappin'!
