CAS-ual Friday(Opposites)


Hiya!
So are you all excited to see who the new Design Team is at CAS-ual Fridays???
Go see...I'll wait!
...
...
I KNOW, right?!?!!! *squeal*
What an amazing group of talented folks. I feel privileged just to be working with them:) I know you will be blown away each week once they start participating. *smile*


This week's challenge is one of my favorites! 
I love using opposing colors from the color wheel! And because orange is my all-time favorite color, I had to go with orange and blue.

We are sponsored by The Craft's Meow this week! 
They have the sweetest stamp sets ever! 

And since Celebrating You was the first set I ever owned from TCM, I thought it fitting to use it for this challenge:) 
I embossed the flowers with orange Zing e.p., added highlights with a Copic marker and a white gel pen before embossing the sentiment in white. To pull more white into the card and balance my off-center flowers, I cut the blue panel down to show more of my white base, and added the orange ribbon loops. 
Sometimes I'm happy with my cards and this is one of those times! *grin*

I really hope you'll join us this week at CAS-ual Fridays because I enjoy checking out all the submissions. And be sure to welcome the OUTSTANDING new DT at CAS-ual Fridays too!
(Welcome new ladies! I'm so happy to be working alongside you!)

Thanks for stopping by,
XOXO,
