This card owes just about everything to my Design Team buddy, Nonni. When I saw her card for our Addicted to Stamps and More! challenge I knew I had to CASE it. I love the colour blocks and embossed flowers. I changed it up on my card by using shades of blue, a different flower and silver embossing powder. To make the base I masked off areas and sponged on the blue inks. Then I randomly stamped the flower and heat embossed with silver powder. I finished the front with a panel of white card and the sentiment stamped in blue. On the inside I cut a mat layer in navy card and simply stamped a single flower.
Michele, over at CAS-ual Friday Stamps - CFS#1 is having a challenge with the theme being "BLUE", and you must use at least one CFS stamp or sentiment. I have most of Michele's stamps and had to play along. I got the theme from the current challenge at MUSE - MUSE#53, where Vicki Dutcher is the Muse with a lovely sympathy card.
The thumbnail display at CAS-ual Friday stamps is absolutely lovely and I'm so pleased I got to play along. Nonni, thanks again for the inspiration. See you soon.
