CAS-ual Fridays | Challenge #128

Hi there! I hope everyone had a nice long weekend. I spent most of the weekend working on my project life album, and I'm happy to say that I'm *almost* all caught up. I really love this project, but I'm always behind! This year I'm trying to change that. 

Anyway, I have a card for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge: So Long. I used two stamp sets from Papertrey Ink (by designer Erin Lincoln) for my card: Background Basics: Diagonals and It's a Banner Day. I also used Mini Blooms.

I stamped the chevron pattern with Memento Luxe Angel Pink pigment ink, then stamped the flowers with Archival black ink. The chevron pattern soaks into the black ink and you can see it through the black flowers. The look is more subtle in person, but I think it's pretty cool. 

The other part of this week's challenge is to create a card that isn't a standard A2 size. I trimmed my card down to 3.5 x 5.5 inches.

That's it for me tonight! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Really awesome card, Erin! Your design flows so well, and I really like the touch of flowers on the bottom right to balance things all out. So well designed!! Thanks so much for joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!
