CASology Week 180: Open


... the envelope, please!!  You'll get the idea when you see my card - one hopes.

CASology's Open cue had me digging through my stamp sets looking, searching, hoping for one set with the word open - sorry about your luck!  As IF - just as much chance at winning that Power Ball billion!

Sorry ... I had made plans and you were all invited.  On a brighter note, my card:

A sweet little envie from PTI, and Hero Arts Acts of Kindness
MFT and Authentique papers;  Paper Smooches hearts
 
I know, I know ... should have used a white envelope - it is a CAS challenge - but I couldn't resist this gorgeous grey/red number.  So please don't be too harsh, CASology ladies? 
 
I'd love to have hearts floating up as I opened a love letter - when it comes down to it, I'd LOve a love letter ... thinking of Lisa Elton's sweet guy making her a birthday card ... *sigh*
 
Thanks for your visits this week!  xx

A brilliant take on the cue word, Michele, and I love that yummy Authentique paper - that's just the kind of envelope a good love letter should arrive in. :D Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
And seriously who doesn't have plans for that Powerball jackpot! My Craft Cave would become a craft mansion complete with guest suites for when all my crafty friends pop over on my private jet for a visit! :D

Would you believe me if I said I made a quick trip to Florida and bought the winning ticket? Nah...me either! Sweet little card, and it does remain CAS with all that white space. Pretty paper! Cool card. Bev

I think it's PERFECTLY CAS even with that gorgeous envelope!! This is fabulous Michlele. Careful now, you are doing to give DA MAN a big head LOL!!!

Cat Craig said...

That envelope is just gorgeous, fabulous card and such a smart take on the cue word.

Sharron said...

The envelope is perfect--gorgeous patterns! Still looks like CAS to me!

Jacquie Southas said...

Thankfully there's more than enough white space to classify as CAS ;)
I adore the paper you have used on this card and great interpretation of the cue word, Michele! Thanks for playing along with the CASology challenge this week.

LoVe that beautiful envelope! Whether it fits their idea of CAS or not is not our problem (teehee)! Great idea for Open too, I might say!

Beautiful card Michelle, and I think the colorful envelop looks more fun than a white one. Love the interpretation of the cue.

Pretty, fresh and sweet. Love it Michele!

Valentyna Komisarenko said...

How lovely it is?! This envelope fits perfectly here and not ruins CASness of this card. I think white texture envelope would be great here too. One more? :)

Bobby said...

Add that envelope die to the share list, Michele. I love this and there's still plenty of white space around the gorgeous paper.

Barb Ghig said...

Oh my gosh, I am really behind! How clever you are to create such a beautiful envie, and adding the fly away hearts is such a lovely idea! Absolutely stunning CAS card, and perfect for this week's cue card!

Lindsey said...

Love this, Michele! I'm so glad you used the patterned envelope. I think it makes the card. PS where is that darling pig I saw on FB? I'm completely in love with that card!!!

Anita in France said...

How delicious, Michele ... I'm glad your little envie is a grey/red little number, complete with floating hearts ... IMHO it's perfectly CAS! Oh, and perfectly gorgeous! Hugs, Anita :)
