CCC #22 - SPARKLE




Welcome to this week's CASology Cue Card challenge.  This week's cue card is:




For my card this week I decided to embossed with silver embossing power, I find that silver always makes you card sparkle.  It shows up so much better in person, bright lights, embossing and cameras need just the right balance when taking your photo.




Head on over to CASology today to learn what the 'cue card' means to you, how you can play along and see the all the cards created by the Design Team to inspire you.

Don`t forget to visit the blogs of the other members of the Design Team:
Tracey McNeely (that`s me)

and this week's Guest Designer Birgit (winner of CCC #20 - GOBBLE)

I can't wait to see what SPARKLE means to you!

Cardstock:  Pure Poppy, White (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: Snowflake Tree (Hero Arts)
Ink:  Pure Poppy (Papertrey Ink) VersaMark (Tsukineko)
other: silver embossing powder

Great idea to use a silver embossing for "sparkle" instead of the glitter which I would think of right away. It's beautiful!

Love the simplicity of this Tracey! I've been MIA due to a death in the family but trying to get back into the swing of things...off to see what I've been missing. Love your work...

Mm-mmm, Tracey, this is MOD CAS. I love everything about it! Silver (and gold) embossing feel good, too. The holder involuntarily reaches a finger to glide over it.
