CAS-ual Fridays (so torn)


Hi friends! Hope things are swell in your world today.
It's Friday, so that must make some of you smile, right?

This clean and simple card is for this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge to use paper tearing.


I can't take credit for this cute idea though...*smile* I saw something similar as a vector on an image hosting site a while ago and saved it for inspiration.
I didn't have two tone cardstock, so I glued two sheets of plain red and plain green paper together and then just started tearing! It was cathartic and fun and I got carried away and had to start over! *chuckle*

Stamps are Casual Fridays Stamps and not yet released but will be soon! *squeal*
Consider this a sneak SNEAK peek:) lol

Join in the challenge this week and show us your paper tearing skillz;)

Thanks for stopping by,
XOXO

This? THIS? This is so insanely amazing, I have no words. Except, can I borrow your brain sometimes so I can create such genius cards? I really might try to steal this idea sometime, but I have a feeling it just wouldn't look as good as yours. You are so talented. WOWZA!! Life is tough right now, but I am soooo thankful for knowing someone like you who inspires me! :)
