I'm just a girl...

...a Girl Friday, that is! I'm so excited to announce that I am now a Design Team member at CAS-ual Fridays!!! Check it:

This is my first design team spot ever, so it's doubly exciting! I am seriously so honored and giddy to have been chosen for this, especially given the talent of the current DT. And Michele did a FANTASTIC job of picking the new design team members. No, really. It's pretty awesome! It's an international group of seriously talented designers. And Michele has created an additional CAS-ual Fridays Facebook design team (genius!). All in all, there are seven new design team members at the blog, and 5 new designers for Facebook inspiration! We will commence our DT term in May. AND, the look of the blog is getting a bit of a makeover in the coming weeks. So there's TONS of exciting things going on at CAS-ual Fridays! Ok, what are you still doing here? GO CHECK OUT THE BIG REVEAL AND THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE!!!
(To see my take on this week's challenge, keep reading.)




So, my term as a designer technically hasn't started yet, but I'm going to be playing along with the challenges just for fun until we officially start next month. Here is this week's challenge:

Using the color wheel, choose one color and it's opposite. Create a project using those 2 colors-adding neutrals is ok!

I picked yellow from the color wheel, and it's opposite is a dark violet color. I created a card to say thank you to Michele for picking me to serve as a DT member. Now for the paper yummies:
I stamped the background using a border stamp from Mint Motif. The sentiment is by Papertrey Ink, stamped on a Nestabilities die cut. I mounted the white die cut onto black cardstock and hand-cut a mat for it, since the next size up in the set was a little too big. I added a simple violet ribbon and finished it off with a pearl. Thanks again, Michele!
