(What should have been) a Quickie for the Outlawz CAS

Although this card should have taken 15 minutes TOPS, I couldn't decide on colors.  Really?  It's a frickin' card base, mat and die cut.  What's WRONG with me!?!  The Outlawz CAS challenge calls for a "romantic theme" and I'm sort of Valentine'd out so I used my adorable new Die-versions Lovely Kids die and made a card that could be an anniversary card or just a sweet "I love you".  The embossing folder is an old Quickutz and the sentiment is computer generated.  I originally started with a black silhouette but it seemed too harsh.  I switched to kraft but it didn't look right with the white.  Changed the mat to cream and then couldn't decide on a base until I found some long lost burlap cards so there ya go.  I kind of like the added texture.

I'm adding this to the DL.Art February Linky challenge, Simon Says Wednesday AG and Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #52 AG.


  1. I hate when that happens. I've lost so much paper that way - just winds up in the trash. Your final product is very pretty, though, you finally got there! Love the little embossing that seems to hug the couple.


  2. What a sweet card. I love the look of the embossed background. For all your troubles, it looks great. Thanks for joining us at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends! :)

  3. Gorgeous card Donna! The image is adorable & the embossed background is lovely.
    I feel your pain Donna! Been there many times lol.
