Designer Challenge ~ Cassandra

Hello everyone!  This is Cassandra and I'm back to host another Designer Challenge.  Last time I hosted the challenge, the goal was to use the colors of the rainbow.  So this time I decided to change it up a bit.  Are you ready?

The guidelines for this challenge:  Make a project of your choice using only BLACK & WHITE!  eek!  That's right ~ no color, just black and white cardstock, embellishments, fibers, photos, etc.  

This past weekend, I hosted a Bridal Bunch for my BFF and this was the pretty card I made for her.  

I cut the scalloped square with my Cameo and a file from the Silhouette Online Store.  The pretty hearts are cut using the heart die from the MCT ~ 100% Sweetness.  The "For your Wedding Shower" sentiment is from the MCT ~ More Gift Card Sentiments.  The label is from the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  I cut the wedding dress with my Cameo and a file from the Silhouette Online Store.  

I hope you like it!  For more information, head on over to my blog for all the fun details. Now let's take a look at what the rest of the Design Team has created.

  7. Hi Emma, I am new to this whole crafting thing, and to be completely honest to the blogs too. I have been following your blog for a little while and really enjoy it the challenges and especially the videos. Emma my question might sound silly, but I was wondering to participate in your challenges do I have to have a url to link my project. I don't really understand the whole url thing. Is it that I would have to have a blog of my own to be able to share my card?

  8. What a great challenge! Emma, great card - the clear looks so neat!
    Dt, you girls make it look so easy, Gorgeous job girls!

    I can't wait to play - I'm sad I didn't get to participate in the last one - I had a good excuse - Vacation time:)
