Addicted to CAS, CAS Colours and Sketches, HLS CAS Challenge, Seize The Birthday, Watercooler Wednesday


My card today was inspired by the lovely colour line-up at CAS Colours and Sketches.

The little flowers around the edge of the circle were painted with DIs and aqua brush, the blue background was SU! marker scribbled onto craft mat and misted with water which I used to smoosh a piece of card and the words heat embossed. 

Linking up to five challenges:
Addicted to CAS - Summer
Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes
Watercooler Wednesday - Feminine Anything Goes

Hi Sue, what a pretty use of die-cuts! I love the stitched rectangle with the rounded corners. As if that die-cut wasn't enough, you cut out the centre with another die and, voila, a lovely, lacy, floral frame for your sentiment. Great colours, too. I love the way those interwoven floral bits have the added colours. They show up so nicely against the blue background for your heat embossed sentiment. Simple, elegant, perfect. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

How beautiful Sue - wonderful colours and great use of the die. The smooshed background panel adds just enough movement to the design
