Happy Retirement


I am determined to try out some different styles of cards this year and cas is something which is actually quite difficult to do well I think so I am going to try more of these. This is yet another ample using one of the new stamps from Stamposaurus, coloured with Copics and a touch of Sakura Golden Star pen.  Other items used are Baker's twine and pearls from The Hobby House

It's funny how CAS designs can be so hard to get right; you have to get over the fear of white space I think.
You definitely got the balance right with this card and the twine looks fab :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
