Best Wishes CAS25

So Monday is the start of a new CAS Challenge. This weeks CAS challenge is a sketch based on this card by Krystie Lee.

It's a very simple layout but for some reason it took me three tries to get it right. So this is the last card I made and the one I was most happy with.

I started with the tree and I wanted add something to the tree that was simple and a little different. I would usually think to place rhinestones or buttons on the ends of the branches, but I wanted to go simpler this time. So I went with a single flower cut from the smallest blossom nestabilities (crinkled of course, I keep doing this for some reason it just adds a little extra) and a button. The green strip was a scrap piece I had laying around my work space. Then finished the card off with a sentiment, ribbon, and a corner rounder. This card totally reminds me of spring!

Definitely was a fun challenge. Third times the charm I guess. I hope you enjoyed! Have a wonderful day!!!
