Back in my comfort zone!

In total contrast to yesterday's post, a CAS card today. 

I thought of the idea for the square frame after using the Cheery Lynn 'French Lattice Small' die recently, which left lovely little shaped waste.  I used the die today on snippets of lime green and royal blue card with the die and used the waste to create a frame.  (I'll use the green and blue lattice frames on future cards.) I marked out a square with a pencil to make is easy to line up the pieces.  The sentiment was matted and layered on snippets of the green and blue card.  

   I am joining in the following challenges:
Less is More Challenge #344 ~ Lime Green / Royal Blue
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 296 and 297 ~ Use Snippets
CASology Challenge - Week 264 ~ Square (Square frame)

    1. It was so quick and easy, Kathy. A couple a dabs of glue on the back of each piece, start at a corner and stick the pieces along the pencil line. xx

    Love the colours and the great idea to use the scraps on this way. Have thought of something like that myself. But my white waste paper does not look that good. ;)
