CAS Colours & Sketches - #210

This is my second week hosting over at CAS Colours & Sketches and I've created this sketch which i hope you'll enjoy using.


Here's my card:

I chose some very not like me colours for this card, hoping for some sunshine and warm days I think! I started by masking off the vertical strip and using a stencil. I then stamped the flower heads and die cut a line of crosses to link them up.

The additon of enamel dots to the flower centres and a sentiment finished off my card.

Stamps: SU, Blooms & Wishes
Inks: SU, peekaboo peach, calypso coral, so saffron; Memento, tuxedo black
Dies: MFT Die-namics, basic stitched lines
Stencil: TCW, mini tiny circles
Embellishments: SU, enamel dots, peekaboo peach

Will you be joining in with this challenge? I really hope so! Go check out the rest of the CC&S DT cards here, remember to keep CAS and get linking up.

Thanks for your time today, I really appreciate your visit to my blog.  And keep crafting!

  7. I like the subtleness of the cross-stitch die cut mixed with the pretty posies.
    Your card seems to have brought the warm weather to my area... the last few days we've had high temperatures around 65-70°F, which is unusual for us in February!
