Gran's Chair

This pretty image is from Beccy's Place and is part of the Progressive/Freebie Challenge over at Outlawz Challenges!  When I was a kid, my grandparents had a child's rocker just this color.  We used to sit in it and read books.

My card is a CAS card this time.  I know, that's very out of character for me!  I'm trying to get out of my comfort zone a bit.  Of course, I couldn't jump out with both feet all at once; I had to layer and put a bow on it!  I suppose that makes this Clean and Layered.

Material List:

  1. What a very pretty card Katrina, the bright yellow and blue work great together and like the touches of pink too. The embossing in the background adds some great texture to your project as does the bow you added in the top corner. I enjoyed your story about the child's rocking chair that you remember from your Grand parents house... it's always nice to make cards that mean something to us. Great job!

  2. Love your image and the fresh and bright coloring - lovely. Thanks so much for joining us this time at the Pile it On Challenge, Elizabeth (DT)
