CASology 69 - Brown


This week's CASology Cue Card is Brown



I just got this sentiment from a new Stamps of Life Set (Extras4Lights). I admit I did not buy the original Light set, and really, I just wanted the sentiments from this set. There's one about Jesus being the Light of the world, which will be perfect for my Church Christmas cards.

Anyway, back to this week's challenge - I didn't think I'd have much use for this particular sentiment, but when I started thinking about brown, reindeer came to mind. And then came the 'ping' as my friend Bev (this week's Guest Designer!!) would say, when I connected the 'magic', 'glow' and Rudolph's nose.

I used Suede ink and a Brown Sugar card base - I just love how the red pops off the brown, making a monochrome card that much more interesting!

Now it's your turn! Before you go, here are links to the blogs of the other DT members - please take a look at the inspiration they've provided:

This is really adorable. I think I have that deer and planned on giving him a red nose, and ended up never using him. Love how you did it here.

Oh my...I love the sentiment font! Fun and whimsical, especially when paired with cute little Rudolph!

The Suede ink looks great! It is so soft and pretty and works perfectly with the 'sweetness' of this card!

Love how you framed the image with the red border works beautifully with the brown and that little deer is sooooo sweet.
