Thanks a bunch!

Hi everyone! It's been a super busy weekend and I treated myself to a little time in the scrap room this afternoon to create a springtime card to enter into some challenges. Seems that everyone is so ready for spring to arrive and there are lots of springtime challenges going on! ;) We've been very fortunate here in north Florida to not have had much of the severe weather that a lot of others have had this winter.

I used the cutest little Gina K Designs stamp set duo that I just love! I kept with a simple white and navy blue color scheme and angled all the elements. I colored up the wheelbarrow in shades of "steel" (gray) and the flowers in dark purple, pink, red, yellow and green. I used a bit of Stardust pen in the center of the flowers for a little shimmer.


If you angle your monitor upward just a bit, you can see the white on white stamped background that I created with a fairly large GKD background stamp. This turned out really neat and is a great addition to the CAS look! I finished it with double wrapped navy blue twine and a small button from my stash, along with some silver gumdrops in the upper right corner.


I stamped a simple Pink Cat Studio friendship greeting on the inside.


I'd love to enter my colorful springtime CAS thank you card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • GKD Pure Luxury white and navy cardstock
  • GKD Thanks a bunch stamp set
  • GKD Wild At Heart background stamp
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Copics: C1/3/5, Y17, YG17/63, R27, RV25, BV04/08
  • Sakura Stardust pen
  • SweetStamps white dye ink
  • Pink Cat Studio Friendship Stamps (inside sentiment)
  • Your Next Stamp silver gumdrops

Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
Hugs,
Leslie
