Wishing You Joy

Hi everyone ~
A quick post tonight to share a fun card I created for this week's CASology Challenge. The Cue Card for this week is 'Run', so I decided to play with my Mama Elephant stamp set, 'So Breezy' to create a CAS card.


To depict the feeling that this boy is running, I stamped him in black, dark gray and light gray, and repeated the same colors for the kite and string...sure hope it doesn't hurt your eyes :-) I added clouds with a template, colored in the word Joy with a red Copic marker to add a pop of color and added a generous dose of Glossy Accents for fun.

So, that's it for me...I hope you are all having a great week! Thanks so much for stopping by ~
