As You See It #104...

Today is my first post as a design team member for the As You See It challenge!  This is a fun challenge site that likes to mix up their weekly challenges.  This week is an assortment challenge.  What does this mean?  You have to use all the elements in the image to make a card!  Fun, right?  And challenging!

This week you must use pool party (or a color similar to it), the ombre effect, knots, circles and negative space.  I was stumped for a bit on this one.  So, I took a cotton ball and my pool party ink and rubbed ink on white cardstock to get an ombre look.  Then I used this cool new die from My Favorite things to die cut that cardstock.  I left the top open for the negative space and replaced the bottom rectangle after I stamped a sentiment. aysi 918 1 (547x640)

All I had left was the circle and knot – I pondered this for a while until I decided to add buttons – that way I could check off the circle and the knot requirements!  This was a fun challenge so I encourage you to try it! aysi 104 2 (640x620)

I love the way you've used the stitched rectangle dies. I have those and haven't thought to use them like this. Very clever!
