Papertrey Ink and Clearly Besotted birthday card

Simply Create Too
Hello everyone, and a warm welcome to Susie from Fold in the Flour blog who is a recent new follower. Susie has the most scrumptious blog, sharing recipes and mouthwatering pictures of her cakes, and she is about to follow her dreams by opening a coffee and cake shop. Good luck Susie! A warm hello also to Jennifer who is a recent new follower but sadly I cannot find a link to a blog to introduce her to you. There have also been some new friends joining us via Bloglovin but I don't know how to link to them, so if anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful.

Well it is time for a new challenge over at Simply Create Too and this time we are asking you to make a card or project with a Mother's Day theme, or indeed any card for a female.

As my Mum passed away when I was only 18, I have no need of a Mother's Day card, so I came up with this card


 I used a pretty flower from my new Clearly Besotted Winter Blooms stamp and die set, and coloured it with Copic markers.



The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Birthday Bash and I love the mix of fonts on it. The tiny dots I added around the sentiment are little bits of waste from when I make die cuts. I pop them in a little baggie and bring them out when I think a card needs a little something other than sequins or pearls. I took my colours from the lovely striped paper which is also from PTI, as is the Canvas Impression plate that I used to give the panel some texture.

I hope you will join us with his challenge and pop over to the Simply Create Too Challenge  to see what my lovely team mates have come up with.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges


CASOLOGY - use NBUS

and The Card Concept Challenge is having a 1st Anniversary - the perfect time for me to play for the first time under the CAS style.


Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs

  8. Beautiful colour scheme on this lovely CAS card. Your use of patterned paper is perfect, and so nice to hear that you were able to 'recycle' those little die bits. I honestly thought they were pearls! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CASology this week!
