It's H{ippity} Hop Monday!!


For my card today, I wanted to enter this weeks CAS-tastic challenge to use Kraft CS - not really a challenge for me as I LOVE using the stuff! I made this 4x4 card using A Moment in Time available on my {ippity} sales blog now - no waiting as I have it in stock! I used the 4 different patterned rectangles & placed them to make a square. I also cut them out first to give a little bit of tecture. Then I paper pierced around them for a little bit more texture. To complete the card, I wrapped some PTI Bakers Twine around the card and placed two blue flowers for a pop of color. I really love it! Hehe, just like the sentiment from PTI's Handwritten Notes - I will make a few more of these to have on hand as we always need thank you cards.

Ditto to all of the above, awesome design!

Ok, I love, love, love this card!!! I think it is great how you turned some of the rectangle labels on the opposite side to give a type of assymetry, yet it all still is so balanced... I love it!! Awesome card girl!! Great job!
