These two cards are more "lining up" for this week's OLW challenge. One of the great things about CAS challenges (OLW, CASology, LIM, CASual Friday etc), is that they make you really focus on one thing. And then it's amazing how many different ideas you can come up with!

Practicing lines....ah hello, I think you mastered it after one try! Now who would have thunk to use masking tape...not me!!! The reverse mask is awesome. But my absolute favorite (until tomorrow's creations) is where you placed your sentiment on the reverse masked card! Wow, I think I have to visit Pinterest....

Debbie said...

Kelly Griglione said...

Both are really great ... the helix-looking one is so super. Unusual shape, yet still very clean and simple. Then you get all fancy and throw a glitter strip in there. Love it, Ardyth!
