CAS Colours & Sketches #140

Hello and welcome to CAS Colours & Sketches first September challenge. And some absolutely beautiful colours chosen by Lizy.

Sugared almonds comes to my mind, how about you?

I needed a thank you card to give to all the wonderful staff at the home where my dad has been having respite care while we've been away on holiday and these colours look so pretty together.

A sprinkle of gorgeous grunge got me started, then I stamped and fussy cut the Uniko flowers and leaves. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted and I thought its spotty shabby look blended really well with the other elements.

Stamps: Uniko, Beautiful Blooms II; SU, Gorgeous Grunge; Clearly Besotted, Thank You
Inks: SU, pink pirouette, rose red, mint macaron

Remember there's loads more fantastic inspiration over at the CC&S blog and this month we have the wonderful talent of Biggi joining us as Guest Designer - you're going to love her cards!

Thanks for dropping by today. And keep crafting!
