Saturday already!

Can't believe it's Saturday - A quick post from me as it's been quite a while since my last one. Am beavering away getting organised for next Saturday so thought I would share a CAS make which is now in the card box.

I really like these colours together - and it was a bit of a happy  accident as I had originally intended to stamp the flower (from the SU Bloom with Hope set) in different shades of orange and yellow!

I used Memento Pear Tart (an awesome green shade which I LOVE!), and Adirondack inks Pink Sherbert and Wild Plum and stamped onto a left over piece of card.

I put a tiny sparkly in the shame shade in the centre of the flowers and simply rounded off the edges before layering onto the base card (with rounded off edges!)

The sentiment stamp is by Technique Tuesday and I finished it off with three more tiny sparklies in the same colours.

Haven't managed to enter the Less Is More Challenge recently owing to the other mayhem that's been taking place (see post below!!) but this week it's 'Makes Me Happy' and these colours DO make me happy as does the overall card, not least because it was never intended to look like this but I like it!!

Other Challenges -
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments - Bingo (Bling/Flowers/Pink)
Natalie & Amy - Flowers
Gem of a Challlenge - CAS
And Sarah told me that over at the Muse Card Club there is a lovely CAS sketch (I am following as many CAS sites as I can for inspiration as I really do want to not face CAS cards with trepidation!) so I have linked up my 'amazing' card (LOL!!).
Thanks for looking - appreciate you leaving me any comments and have a great weekend whatever you're doing. xx

This is beautiful. I love this stamp and how you used it.

Shona Chambers said...

Well, I don't think you need to be scared of CAS cards anymore....this is perfection!!! Its funny how we all have our favourite ways of doing cards. I get flustered when I need to layer papers and it always ends up looking messy, need to do those kind of cards more often! I just love the colours you used for the flowers, they go together beautifully and the rhinestones are the perfect touch of bling. Thank you so very much for joining me at Muse this week and maybe I will be seeing more of your cards in other CAS challenges......
