Guess what?! I made it to the final round for the CAS summer design team. For this round we had an inspiration picture:
When I saw the picture I had no idea what I was going to do. I knew I wanted to stay with the "Beach Party" theme. So I was paging through my binder (I have stamped, die cut, and punched all of my supplies in an embarrassingly huge binder) I saw the set of beachy Cuttlekids die cuts and the wheels started turning. Since the image was a set of "sand toys" I thought sandcastles, sand, and sand toys! That's when I decided to dig around for some sandpaper! I love the texture it adds to the card (just like the texure rollers add texture to the sand). The bowl in the image has a raised star in it, so I added a raised star on the sand pail. And I used the colors of the sand toys on my sand toys, and a splash of purple for the sentiment. I kept the base white because I really like the contrast with the bright colors, just like in the picture.
Now the hard part is to wait. Entries are due Tuesday and the reveal is Thursday night.
