When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

CAS(E) this Sketch!: No. 9

Another fun I card I made using Silhouette Cameo.  Over the weekend I found another card challenge online, CAS(E) this Sketch!.  Yes CAS(E) as in clean and simple, which has always been a challenge for me.  Less is always beautiful and I admire people who makes cards and scrapbook layouts with very minimum on it yet they can still make it look gorgeous.  Have to try...

This is the sketch for the said challenge...
 This is my take.  I cut the images using Silhouette Cameo. 
I think its perfect for the 3 focal points of the sketch. 
I made a big decision to cut my papers into 6 X 6 and save only 12X12's that I might use for LO and envies. The rest I gotten rid off.  Nowadays, I only buy 6 X 6 paper stacks instead of 12 X 12.  I realized that everytime I would make a card recently, I make sure I use those leftover scraps for inside and presto, no more scraps that lays around collecting dust.  One of the things I promised to do too was to make envies using 12 X 12.
During the move and packing in August, I have gotten rid off so much 12 X 12 papers and it really broke my heart.  Now that I'm left with very little of it, I decided to use it rather than just collect it... Make sense, right!?

MATERIALS:
PAPER: Bazzill, Stampin' Up! and Georgia Pacific{cardstock) Simle Stories {patterned paper}
