Less Is More #243 and Time Out #41

This card is probably not what you'd expect from a challenge whose theme is "Something Shiny".  In fact, I'm not sure you can even see the shine in my photo but it's there.


The card is for Less Is More but it uses the sketch from last week's CAS(E) This Sketch, which I loved and wanted to use again.  I inked up glossy photo paper which gives the shine and then cut the leaves from MFT.  Now that I think about it, I could have embossed the sentiment in gold for even more shine but I wasn't thinking that at the time.

Time Out is having a fall theme and so I'm sending this card there, too.  Their actual challenge is "Autumn . . . the year's last, loveliest smile" so you can use any of those words to inspire you.

ETA:  Thanks Sarah for reminding me of the Uniko Fall challenge.  I'm linking up there, too.

I'm so glad you dropped by.  The weekend is upon us.  I hope you have a great one.

  8. Bobby, just incase you want to link this somewhere else, its CAS time over at ATSM this week, this would be perfect! This is such a brilliant design and love the colour of your leaves, they have a highlight and shine to them of their own I think. Fabulous CAS card, so glad you shared it with us at TIME OUT!
