I have another Clean & Simple card to show you today that was inspired by the DT inspiration at CAS-ual Fridays.

Don't forget to check out my DT Call.

I'm really tickled with it because I was able to create the oval cut outs in the Silhouette software. with layers and frames. Slowly but surely I'm trying new things with the software.

Sequins (Royal Castle Shoppe)
Embossing folder
Silhouette Software Custom Created Cuts
Stampin' Up "Serene Silhouettes"
Image background created using masking tape that was inked and then transferred to white cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I am up to. :) Janis
