The Card Concept #55

Time for a new challenge at The Card Concept.

We have a bright and sunny photo for you today.

I was inspired by the yellow and black and just the fact the photo made me want to smile:

Here is our photo:

Originally I had made this card for this challenge but I am on the Clean and Simple DT and all these dots made this card not a 'true' CAS card so I CASEd myself and came up with this version. This version made my CAS loving heart happier! The orange'smile' is heart embossed and the rest of it is made with stitched dies.

Remember you can create you card in any style or combine styles.

This month our Guest Designer is the very talented Becca. She will be creating mixed media cards for us. Becca's blog, The Damsel of Distress, will be known by many of you but if not, pop over there and you will be inspired.

I will enter this into the CAS Mix Up Challenge-heat embossing (my sentiment), stamping and stitched die
