Pink, Green, Blue & Chocolate CAS34

Hello my friends and happy Tuesday to you all.

This weeks CAS Challenge is a color challenge... to use pink, green, blue & chocolate (optional). Here is what I came up with...
I went with my With Sympathy stamp set, I haven't used this one in a while. Stamped the vine image in moss and incorporated the other colors for the challenge through the flowers. The tiny flower image was stamped directly onto the white cardstock. The larger flowers were stamped then cut out and attached with dimensional adhesive.

The sentiment was stamped onto a pink strip, punched holes on either side, strung the floss through, wrapped it around the card and tied it off into a bow.
Finished off the card with some Liquid Pearls in the center of the flowers.

It sure is a nice day in my neighbor hood today, the temperature has finally gone down (it's a cool 68 deg). They say its supposed to get cooler as the week progresses, yeah it finally feels like fall is actually here!

Glad you stopped by today! I do hope you enjoyed your visit.

  10. That is one of my favorite sets, I love that vine!!! Great card, the colors are lovely and the embroidery floss accent is perfect!

  11. I've been meaning to comment on this sooner, but didn't get around to it!! I LOVE this card! It's SOOO elegant, delicate and pretty looking! I love the colors of it too!! I was just over at the CARDS blog and see you were chosen as one of the challenge winners with this card!!! Congratulations girl!! I was actually wondering if you had entered it cause I was thinking it would be perfect for the challenge, considering it was just to use flowers on the card. And you did such an AWESOME job!! I'm a little disappointed... I missed the deadline and didn't get a picture of the card I had made for it on time. I guess I didn't pay enough attention to when the deadline was.:( A lot of things going on around here and time goes way too fast. Anyway, I'm so happy you won!!! :)
