CCC #191 ~ Blessings!

Hi friends! I had a little crafting time today so I put together a quick card for CASology. Their cue word is Washi. Blew the dust off my jar and came up with this!!


I think this Washi came from the Craft Junction after having a card published in Cards magazine a while back. I like the creamy off white and gray color combo. After adding it to my vintage cream panel, I dry embossed a portion of it with a Henna Embossing folder. A fancy font sentiment (Impression Obsession) seemed appropriate here.



My in house critic likes this one, it's one of his faves! He said it was "quite elegant!" Hope you like it too. Thanks for stopping by ~Lisa

Full of elegance! Really love that embossed image! I never got a single thing from Craft Junction. They never had much good stuff, but they wouldn't let me order anything. Something about my email address being wrong. I've had the same one for almost 11 years. I don't even remember another one. I lost hundreds of earned dollars. So sad.
