A CASe of insomnia...

Hello blogger friends! 

(Disclaimer: I cannot be held responsible for spelling/grammatical errors and/or babbling because as I type it's 3:08 a.m.)

I had energy until the very second I sat down to create this post, so I won't be long.

Surfing the internet a.k.a my favorite card making blogs, I came upon two challenges that instantly inspired me so I created a card.


I so adore the color combo!

Here's my creation:

The challenge was to use 'strips' of color or pattern in your card design & the color choice is pretty obvious.

Here's a close up of the detail on the banner...

I really love the look of stamping with the VersaMark watermarking ink pad! It's such an easy way to add a little detail without over powering your clean & simple look.

Ok. I'm officially about to pass out, so it's off to bed I go...
(AFTER I post my cards to the challenge galleries!)

I really hope you enjoyed my late night/early morning ramblings.
Please leave a comment and/or join! I'm really a lot of fun :o)

Have a great day!
