sCongratulations, Shona! Here is what Sarah had to say about your card:

 A stunning example of clean, simple and crisp design! Despite the
simplistic look to the card, the intricate faceted die certainly isn't 
a simple one to select for the inlaid die technique. Utilised to 
perfection here though with total elegance and sophistication.

make me happy :-)

Welcome back everyone! We are so happy to bring you are next challenge - 

Your hostess is the hugely talented Sarah and this is the code word she has chosen for you 

Our wonderful sponsor this challenge is 

and the prize is a $15 certificate to the shop :)

We are so happy to introduce our Guest Designer for this challenge

Firstly, I want to sincerely thank Addicted to CAS and the designers for this opportunity! What a joy to be guest designing here with such talented company. 

So with that said, let me introduce myself. My name is Shawna Standish from TheGrandStampede. I am a forty year old mother of two, nicely nestled in Michigan, USA. I have been creating cards for about three years. It all started when I was faced with the possibility of becoming blind. It was not until then I started looking at color and objects with new vigor, soaking up everything, knowing I might not see in the future. Fortunately I am fine, and I live to see another day. 

My crafting however, lead into an unstoppable obsession. I wanted to share my art with others who had similar interests. I ended up finding wonderful people from all around the world. I could not be more blessed to know my blog friends and to see their art which inspires so much of what I do. Again thanks to everyone at Addicted to CAS for this amazing opportunity to share my work with others.

All the best,


On with our inspiration
