AAA Cards Challenge #107 - Chilled

Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at AAA Cards. And I'm loving the chilly aquas from the badge graphic.

So with thoughts about making a snow scene card I created my aqua background using distress oxide ink and added a die cut snowy slope.

Then I got to thinking about how chilled is also used to describe a relaxed and enjoyable feeling. And as I wanted to feature stamps by our new sponsor CAS-ual Fridays I chose one of their tutu ladies and added some glittery aqua to her skirt and hairband. What better way to chill out than dancing!

Here's my tip for keeping your card AAA Cards CAS - if you've created a scene with an all over pattern like my aqua sky simply frame it and add to a larger card base to ensure you still have plenty of that all important non-patterned, non-textured empty 'white' space.

Stamps: CASual Fridays, Tutu
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress oxide, salty ocean
Dies: MFT Die-namics, basic stitched edges; Lawn Fawn, stitched rectangle frames
Pen: Spectrum Noir Sparkle, aquamarine

We've two incredibly talented ladies joining us as Guest Designers for this challenge - Anita and Milla. Go check out their cards and find links to their blogs HERE. And of course there's all the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the AAA Cards DT to be found HERE too.

So pleased you dropped by today, thanks a bunch for your time.

And keep crafting!
