Another CAS challenge.


































I am enjoying experimenting with CAS cards at the moment and after seeing this weeks sketch challenge at "Less is More" I decided to play along.  For this really simple card I masked the border with low tac masking tape and stamped and distressed the Hydrangea image in the middle.  I then just removed the tape and added the sentiment.    I stamped the flower with Peacock Feather ink, a new one to my collection and I really love the bright colour, so pretty.
I am also adding this to the "Addicted to CAS" challenge, which is "Flowers"




















































I was asked to make a non traditional Christening card for a lady at work, I found this sweet little applique bear in my local Stamp Shop and knew he would be perfect for my card. The sentiment is computer generated so I haven't actually used any stamping on this card, which is very unusual for me.

I hope you are having a great weekend, I have been able to get in the garden again today and have planted some seeds, lets hope the good weather is here to stay!

Your masking is total perfection, Sally - I LOVE that hydrangea :) And the applique is so cute! Funny I've found myself stamping more lately & using less patterned papers...over time we just evolve it seems.

I've always loved that hydrangea stamp and I think I love it even more "in small portions". Fabulous card.
