If Bold is what you want, then Bold is what you'll have

I'm cutting this fine. So what's new. I'm submitting a card to this week's CASology challenge. At the time of typing, I have about two hours remaining before the deadline closes. So I don't have too long to wax lyrical tonight.

The cue card is Bold. Well, that is certainly my kinda card. I'm nothing if not bold. So with no further ado, I give you...




Bold enough? lol

The card I used comes from a Becky Higgin's Project Life set sold by Craftie Charlie The Strawberry Edition. They are on sale at half price if you live in the UK and are interested.

There are six gorgeous colours in the collection and I thought it's be fun to pair up two contrasting ones. I took the fuschia card and with an alphabet die, cut the word out. I backed it onto lime-green and then adhered the whole thing to black cardstock.

The idea stems from a quiz where you read words spelt in the wrong colour. After a while it messes with your brain. I've had another idea since but as I say, time is running out. I will make a new card with the updated idea another time.

Paul, this is definitely bold! (Your post made me chuckle...it reminds me of that brain teaser when you have someone repeat the word "toast" five times, then ask, "What do you put in a toaster?" and they say usually toast when the answer is bread!) I love the bold colors and the humr behind your card...very bold and clever! Thanks for joining us at CASology!

I think this fits the bill admirably! I love lime green with anything :).

Super "bold" challenge card! I like green and pink together. These bright, leaning toward neon shades paired, look great! :)
