Lime and Black Blossoms

This week at CAS Colours and Sketches the DT have a sketch for you, very clean and simple -

I have made a minor change in that I have used a rectangular card rather than a square, and I've added a sentiment but, apart from that, it's the same.  Feel free to make the sketch your own too, all you need to make sure of is that your card is CAS - not too many embellishments, layers, or inky techniques, and that it has a stamped image.  Enough of the rules, here's my card

I used the very modern colour combination of lime and black from the challenge this week at Less Is More and came up with this design, my three plants gradually bursting into flower on the windowsill - it took ages to get the three panels exactly level! Couldn't quite get the sentiment in the right place I feel, I've tried it all over the place! Oh well, went with what I thought was best.
I will be back on Saturday, but not too many posts from me this weekend, as I'm off to visit my in-laws in The Netherlands, and have to schedule everything to happen in my absence. Fingers crossed!


  1. Hi Louise, first congrats on TT! I like how you have changed the sketch slightly and the idea of the flowers gradually blooming is just perfect for this time of year!

  2. This is such a lovely simple card but so effective. I love the lime and black, not a colour combo I would have thought to use and the flowers gradually blooming, such a good idea. I love it. I wonder if I will have time to have a go. Its all rush at the moment. Have a lovely weekend.! Love Viji. x

  3. Gorgeous card Louise, it has a fab design!


  4. A Fab CAS card Louise, I love how the number of flowers in each vase increases, a great touch.

  6. Love how you have used the sketch Louise - gorgeous colours too. Hope you have a lovely time away - Jacqueline xx

  7. The lime branches look wonderful coming out of those black vases Louise and I love the way you used the sketch, making your panels smaller and off-setting them. Vicky x


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
