CCC #47 and CFC103 and Addicted to CAS #14



Welcome back for this week's CASology challenge.
You will notice at the CASology blog that we have had a makeover, a new Clean & Simple look. 
You definitely need to drop in to see it.

This week our cue card is:




Are the wheels turning already??

I can think of a certain young man that will be getting this card is a couple of weeks.  Hoping the colours are not too girly for him.  I also hope he doesn't think he is getting a car.  LOL

Tilting your design adds more interest to a smaller image and adding some stamping behind the focal image creates movement. I am also submitting this card to CAS-ual Fridays congratulations challenge and Addicted to CAS #14.









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.

Oh, this is an excellent graduation card. And, I think I know who THIS one is going to. This is exactly the set I thought of the moment I saw the key word. Of course, now I can't think of anything but this card. Super cute.

Bonnie said...

Love this bug! Oh, I hope he doesn't think he's getting a car other than this one!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Just amazingly creative, Tracey, and done with precision, which is the hallmark of your style! I REALLY love the exhaust circles coming out the back!!

Hmmm, exhaust CIRCLES . . . I don't see that you also entered this in the Addicted to CAS (ATCAS) challenge, which is, ahem, circles. I'd definitely be editing my post to add it as it looks like another winner in that category, too!!

(We don't want the ink in that mahoosive Winner's Book to get dry!)

Lisa said...

PERFECT Tracey! I love the little grad cap and the sketchy circles behind the car!

LeAnne said...

How fun is this! I learned to drive a stick shift in a VW like this! But it wasn't as cutely-colored as this one! He'll love it!

Lindsey said...

Fabulous card! I just used this set for a graduation card, too. :) I LOVE how you added the sketchy circles behind the car. I live behind a high school and that totally reminds me of what I've been seeing the last couple days...cars zooming out of the parking lot leaving exhaust trails behind them as I'm sure some of them are leaving this school for the last time. This card just captures that same excitement perfectly.

Vicki Dutcher said...

Kelly Griglione said...

Yep, that tilting really adds another level of awesomeness!! Like the car is going so fast around the corner that it's only on two wheels. And how perfect is that story for a graduation card?!? Love it! So glad to see you at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge (for real this time)!
