CCC May 2023

 Spring Greetings!

This time my card has gone to Colorado. It is so much fun making cards and sharing cards, often sent over seas. 

I used the suggested colors this month, turquoise, navy blue and gold. As you can see, I didn't put a sentiment on the front of this card. Honestly, I couldn't think of what to say and where to put it. Senior moment(s) I think.

This interesting grid die is from an older but still available Spellbinders set called Chinese Traditional Fence. I used SU's Tempting Turquoise cardstock to cut out one of the two dies in the set. The gold rectangular panel behind is from my stash.

To incorporate the navy color, I cut a panel of Night of Navy and then glued down the whole focal point onto a piece of white. The MFT basic white c.s. is a bit textured with SU's retired Subtle embossing folder. Using the white piece I think highlights the pretty grid.

You can see some of the die cut pieces alongside my card. I think they look like Tetris pieces. Oh, I so love to play that game.

All in all, a pretty simple card. Inside I put a rectangle of the white plus a note saying to my recipient that she could finish and pass the card along.

I don't believe I have every used this Spellbinder's die, so am adding the card to Darnell's NBUS for June. I cannot post this until the May CCC challenge closes.

It has been so lovely here in MN the last few days and we are expecting temps in the 80's and 90's most of this coming week.  Too hot for me! I hope it is nice where you are.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will come by again.
