So Saturday

Hi! Today I'm sharing a card I made for Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge. 

And I thought the shaped Christmas card challenge was tough, well this one really had me stumped for ages! But I eventually came up with this card:

I followed the instructions from HLS to make some faux mother of pearl card and then stamped on top of it. When it was dry I then sponged over with the same pink ink as I had used for the stamping.

I hand cut both the flower and leaves and added them on top of a strip of patterned paper and washi tape.  A simple sentiment seemed appropriate to keep this card nice and CAS.

A bit more of a close up trying to showcase the mother of pearl effect.

Stamps: Uniko, Beautiful Blooms II, sentiment from A Gift For You
Inks: SU, strawberry slush, wild wasabi; Memento, tuxedo black
Paper: Lawn Fawn, Beachside 6x6 pad
Other: Liquid Pearls, white opal; Washi from my stash

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, I really appreciate your time.  And keep crafting!
