On Cloud 9...Guest Designing at CAS-ual Fridays!

 Update: this card was a Winner at CASE Study ...thanks Chupa and the entire team of CASE Study

CAS- ual Fridays challenge blog was where I started my journey with challenges way back in Feb . I loved the Clean and Simple style of cardmaking and attempted almost every week to come up with something unique and simple.
 In July when I won their challenge , my second time around, I got a chance to guest design  for them  for the month of August. I am so honored and excited, thanks to Michele and the CFC team for this wonderful opportunity!

CFC#64- On Cloud 9

This week  the theme will be things you'd see in the sky, examples-clouds, airplanes, birds, kites, etc.
I came up with this mixed media card with a background watercolor wash which has slowly become my signature style I guess!!

  Simon Says Stamp will be our fabulous sponsor this week.

Supplies: Stamps- Wplus9, Dies- Memory Box,watercolor paper, artists watercolors

Sharing with Case Study who turns 2 this month !
the challenge is to show our signature style and I guess this  card would be an ideal "sanketi" card!
white background and watercolors with a bit of dimension...perfect Sanketi  recipe !

  14. Hey Sanketi...not knowing how else to get in touch with you, so thankful that you have to approve your comments. I was totally enamored with your wedding card last month and was wondering what company/name the sentiment stamp you used was from...I have 2 weddings next month and would love to see if I could find it somewhere before then. I keep checking that post, but haven't seen you mention it. Would so appreciate your help....who knows, I may not be able to find it, but sure would love to try:):)!! Thanks, Sanketi!!! It's the Two Shall Become One sentiment.
