Sister Act Challenge #54

Friday means a new anything goes challenge at the Sister Act Challenge Blog.  Digital Delights by Louby Loo is this week's sponsor.  They are having a Spring Fling sale, so it's a good time to pick up some of their images if you are in the market.

I'm trying some new techniques and ideas for cards, so you'll notice a lack of coloring on my Sister Act posts in the coming weeks.  Although, to be honest, I did bring our some Copics to add some shading to the flowers and leaves to add some depth on this one.  I'm not giving it up, I promise you - just pop back on a Saturday for my Sketch Saturday posts if you want  to see my Copics in action.

Is this a CAS card, or what?!?  Lots of white space. . . and when I use this much white, I have to emboss.  I love the simplicity of this Darice embossing folder.  I used a Memory Box die to cut into the white, ran it through the Cuttlebug to emboss the background, and then added some scraps of patterned paper behind the die cut.  The sentiment  is stamped in black and finally comes the sequins as an accent.

Stop by the Sister Act Blog and see the variety of cards the DT has for you this week.  You will be glad you did!
