Monday Moments

Funny how my fingers almost typed moanings rather than moments! But there's no moaning today, just happiness that I've got my challenge mojo back.  So today's card uses the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the theme from STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge.

I made two versions of this card, as I wanted to try it both with and without the optional twist of silver.

Here's the first version:

I played with some of my favourite cheery colours and built up a happy little scene to represent the circles from the sketch. I added three little hearts to link the scene elements and the sentiment.

Here's the second version where I've added a partial silver mat on the left hand side.

I used a matt silver card rather than my usual go to of mirri card - thought it was a bit more subtle.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn, Fly Free & Hello Sunshine
Inks: SU, melon mambo, tempting turquoise, daffodil delight; Memento, tuxedo black

So do you have a favourite? Being a CAS girl at heart I'm leaning towards the first version, but then again the silver does give more definition and is still CAS enough to satisfy me. I'd love to hear your opinion.

Thanks for your time visiting my blog today, it is much appreciated.

And keep crafting!
