Addicted to CAS Challenge #95

Hi all,
It's time for another fun challenge at Addicted to CAS! Our Guest Designer is Nicole Vogeli, and our Sponsor is Stamplorations! Our hostess for this challenge is Bhavana, and she has chosen our Code Word:



Let's get this party started...Here is my first card:



I love fashion from the 1940's, so I die cut this Silhouette on my Cameo, and placed her on a narrow distress inked panel, which I created by masking. The sentiment is from PTI stamp set 'Fashion Sense' (Stamp-a-faire 2015). The gold pearls are from an old package of Prima gems, and I thought they were a fun way to add dimension to this card.

I just bought the MFT die 'London Skyline', and couldn't wait to use it on a card...so, I created this card as well:




I created a much lighter sky on this card, and added a full moon and some splatters (which I don't love), but it's meant to inspire our visitors to the challenge blog, so I hope it serves its' purpose :) The sentiment is from PTI's Ahoy stamp set.

Since it's always a 2 week challenge, I hope you'll be able to find the time to stop over at the Addicted to CAS challenge blog to see what our Guest Designer and my amazing teamies have created, and play along with us! 

Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by,

Oh yes, Barb, 40s fashion is so stylish and chic ... this bold silhouette is fabulous against your gorgeous blending ... and what a perfect touch of glamourous gold! Delicious skyline ... more scrumptious blended colour ... definitely looks like a night on the town! Hugs, Anita :)

Barb, both card are beautiful. I love the retro style also. Really like the pearls you added to the first card. I think, small details always add great interest to CAS cards ;) - Sweet Kobylkin

Holy...boy, do yyou know how to rock this Silhouette vibe. Both of these cards are beyond gorgeous. Love all that contrast you've created but I think the first one has captured my heart. (I'm a pre WWII junkie, as well).
