Artful Delight Friday - Thanks!


I can't believe August is almost over!  Today's card was lots of fun to create.  I really wanted to use that great number paper from The Pier, and I paired it with the blue woodgrain paper. 


I cut the circle elements using my Creative Memories Custom Cutting system (it's old school but it works).  The white mat is actually from another of the Pier papers.  I wanted something not quite white white, and not quite off white, since it's from the same collection, the 'white' matches perfectly.

A little bit of May Arts burlap string added some balance to the card.

I'm going to link this up over at Simon Says Stamp for Anything Goes Week too.

I had a great time with this month's kit.  It's amazing when I look back how different and varied my cards are, the Artful Delight kits are so versatile, be sure to check them out....September's kits look FANTASTIC!





Supplies Used:  Artful Delight August Card Kit; Versamark; AC - Zing White Embossing Powder; CTMH - Dimensional Foam Tape; May Arts - White Burlap String; Kuretake - Glue Pen; Tombow - Mono Adhesive

  16. That number paper is pretty amazing. I love how you framed the butterfly in the circle cut, it adds a lot of interest. It was neat to see so many cards together created from the same kit - very versatile assortment for sure :)
