CAS-ual Fridays #18: Forever Young


Happy Monday and Labor Day! I'm so grateful for our long weekend and for the COOL weather in Dallas, finally! I got up to 69 degrees this morning, SO heavenly!!


I squeezed in time for one card today, yippee! The challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays is to create a project inspired by a book, and use the colors black, red, and white in honor of International Literacy Day on September 8th! Seriously, how could a teacher not participate?! :)


I used the SU set Forever Young, and my design is based on the book The Picture of Dorian Gray. I embossed the images using Versamark ink and black embossing powder, then fussy cut the little frame. A lot of sunlight in the picture, sorry about that!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, First Edition DSP.
Ink: Memento Black, Versamark.
