CASology #86


Welcome to Week 86 of CASology!  Here's the cue word for this week:



This week's cue word was the source of some good conversation amongst the design team and wait until you see all the different directions we went in!  This is why I love this challenge - you never quite know where it will take you.  For me, I got the phrase "Roots Rock Reggae" stuck in my head which then lead me to Bob Marley's "One Love."  I was inspired by a couple of images I found on Google.   I like the font on the first image and the distressed look of the second.  


Go visit the rest of the design team and then get cracking' on an entry.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!




And this week's guest designer:

This is rather brilliant, isn't it? And even if the recipient doesn't click to the connection, it's still a bold, eye-catching, graphic card.

This is such a cool card, but I could not for the life of me figure out what was the connection to roots--good thing I clicked over here to read your post. Great idea.
