Believe Impossible Things

Good morning everyone!  A very quick CAS design for today.

My card is a standard 4.25" x 5.5" and it's been stamped with a flourish in Hero Arts Shadow Ink.  Then I stamped the various patterns on a strip of card stock in two shades of the Hero Arts inks and created the lighter gray shade by stamping off.

A simple sentiment, some distressing, and a few rhinestones and done!

This card is for:
CTD273 (Color Throw Down) using Tempting Turquoise, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray and white
CFC125 (CAS-ual Fridays) in a use a word or words that describe your hopes for the new year

Here's what I've used:
Paper:  Gina K. pure luxury white
Ink:  Hero Arts Soft Pool, Soft Granite and Ranger Archival Jet Black
Stamps:  Hero Arts (background), WPlus9 (patterns) and Unity Stamps (sentiment)
All the other stuff:  distressing tool, rhinestones

  6. First, I am in love with the sentiment. I think I might need that stamp! Second, the strip of stamped patterns--wow. That is awesome! Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  7. I do find your sentiment so inspiring. the distressed edges is my favorite part. When I am in a rut with a card, I distress the edges and it seems to make it better. So more distressing for 2014 too!!
