Tuesday Tales

Can't believe I'm up early again! Must be the remnants of having young children staying. After such a busy day yesterday, today promises to be much calmer, just a crafty friends get-together this afternoon.

My card today is for the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge and may just be showing signs of getting there with clean and simple. It was definitely quick to make and I really love how it looks - so for once I'm actually satisfied with my efforts.

 

 

I love the crumb cake colour, but don't have any ink that even comes close to matching, so paper had to be substituted.  I think a stamped design would look good instead of the paper and am off now to have a go and will add it to this post later today.

Supplies:
Stamp: Uniko Studio, All Occasion Sentiment #3
Ink: Memento, rhubarb stalk
Paper: American Crafts, Garden Cafe
Punch: Martha Stewart

Thanks for looking.

  2. You've created three great cards with this terrific CAS layout. I love the tiny butterflies. I also like how the pearl accents mimic the polka dots on the first card. Thanks for sharing your work with us at CAS - Colours and Sketches!
