Grunge, Grids & Hearts CAS Style!

Hey & Happy Monday!

I do hope your week has got off to a good start? If not I hope todays card might lift your spirits and bring you a bit of cheer...

Today I am going grunge with grids, hearts & loopy linen thread bows CAS style! It all started with a new SU! stamp I bought called Off the Grid and the current CAS(E) this Sketch! layout seen below.

Having a sketch and stamps decided I needed some colours to park my creation a little more, so I decided to use the current CAS - Colours & Sketches colours seen HERE and below.

I knew I wanted to mask and stamp the grid down the length of the card, which I did and then I went ahead & wrapped some fine linen thread (given to me by a lovely friend from TPL Thanks Brenda!) round the length of the card and securing where I would place the stamped & cut out heart. 

I then thought it looked a little flat so decided to add some loops of the linen thread to peep out from behind the heart. This gave the card more interest and added to the CAS grunge type feel I was looking for.

That's all from me today, if you missed the announcement of the January Blog Hop yesterday, it is HERE and also we have a sketch challenge this month HERE, I'd love you to join in! Until tomorrow, thank you for stopping by today :)
