Like the mellow ray of a departing sun…

Sharing a CAS card featuring one of the images and sentiments from the now retired Beach Happy set by Stampin’ Up!.

I needed to make a retirement card for a male colleague and was in need of inspiration so I turned to the challenge blogs and, as usual, I found some.  First up was Addicted to CAS and their silhouette challenge, which, when combined with the black and white and a splash of colour challenge at Creative Friday had me digging through my stamps for this deck chair image.  I used a circle die to create a stencil to add in the sun for my splash of colour and then did the rest in the requisite black.

For my layout I followed the current sketch at The Paper Players.  It gave me the opportunity to frame the silhouetted image adding some interest to my otherwise quite simple card.  Although CAS I love the pop of yellow and think it turned out pretty good.
