Walking On A Tightrope

Happy Tuesday! Just a quick post since I've got to get back to work. I made a card to link up to two challenges (never managed to do that before). I combined the colors of the Play Date Cafe with the sketch in CAS-ual Friday. Here are the Play Date Cafe colors (love them!!):


Here's the CAS-ual Friday sketch:

And, here's my card:

I combined my new My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Two stamp (gorgeous and cheap set...can't beat that!) with some My Mind's Eye papers. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday's new Studio AE set. I also wanted to use some of the new buttercream twine that Nicole from the Twinery sent me (thanks, Nicole!). Isn't the yellow twine a pretty and soft color? Love it! I tried to align the twine like the banner (because I'm Type A). Here's a close-up:



And as a reminder, I'm having a blog candy giveaway as a thank you to all of my blog-world friends! All you have to do is follow me in Google (click on the right) and leave a comment. I'm adding to the blog candy, but a picture of the first batch is here.

Thank you so much for taking time to look! Have a great day!
