January 30

Happy Wednesday!
It's the half-way point of the week
which means there are only 2 more sleeps til Friday!
You know how much we adore Fridays around here! *wink*

Girl Friday Virginia has a lovely card to share with you today


Oh, how I love those vines hanging down!
Notice how she stamped both the solid and open vines over each other.
The vines are a slightly different size which gives a wonderful shadowy color effect. 
I think stamping on pattern paper is a fabulous technique, 
and I just love the combination of the whimsical vines with the 
graphic paper.

We would love to see what you've created so far with Casual Elegance!
Please share your projects with us in our flickr or Splitcoast galleries.
You can find the direct links at the top of the blog :)
