CASology #45


Welcome to Week 45 of CASology!  Here's the cue word for this week:



As soon as I saw this week's cue word I knew I wanted to use this Unity sentiment.  I love it and it's been used more than a few times (like here and here).  Since I've used it with a crown before I decided to go for a different image and pulled out this chess piece from Fresh Squeezed Stamps.  I couldn't totally resist the crowns though as you can see from the patterned paper - some long hoarded DCWV paper at that!  Whoop whoop for using stash! Okay, your turn to show us some royal designs.  Check out the gorgeous parade of inspiration from the DT and then get craftin'!



And this week's guest designer:

I do adore that sentiment. Giving the "queen" some extra bling is such an inspired idea, too. And talk about the perfect paper! Adds up to one awesome card, Jen!
