Redefining "Pop" Art

I CASEd this card from Gwen. Check out her original card here. I just love the simplicity of it. The square behind the leaf is just one of the Clear Blocks, inked up, and "stamped" on the cardstock! The stamp set is one of my favorite, "Lovely As a Tree". I got that stamp set in my Demonstrator Starter Kit almost 9 years ago! Learn more about becoming a demonstrator here.

Supplies: Lovely As a Tree, Thank You Kindly, Old Olive ink & cardstock, Certainly Celery ink & cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Clear Block C, Certainly Celery 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Pop Can Tab

This card fits my new Facebook Fan Challenge. The theme this month is "Go Green". Click here to read all the details and then post your contest entry on my fan page by March 24th. My card is literally green, but the challenge is to recycle/reuse/repurpose an object or material on your project. My card uses a pop can tab as a ribbon slide! I can't wait to see how you "Go Green" and I look forward to your challenge submissions!

Before I wrap this up, I have to acknowledge a couple of blog awards. One from Gwen, who inspired today's card. Gwen recently awarded me with the Stylish Blogger Award (Thank you so much, Gwen!!) I'm so bad about blog awards. I always forget to post and can't narrow down who I want to give them to... In fact, I'm very belated, but also need to acknowledge the Cherry on Top Award from Kathy. Kathy is a member of my Stamp Club in Springfield and often posts multiple cards each day on her blog! I love keeping up with her latest creations. Thank you for the award, Kathy! Sorry I am so late in my response!
