CAS Floral Birthday

Its holiday season and like many people I am scheduling this post to go live when I am away, I hope it works and you are seeing this for the first time on the right day at the right time! It's my DT card for this week's challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches

It's a fab sketch, so many possibilities. I knew what I wanted to do as soon as I saw it...

Using Kinda Eclectic and Stippled Blossoms, I dropped the design to the bottom of the card so that the sentiment, from Fabulous Four, could take centre stage. The border is hand drawn. Inside I have stamped a traditional Happy Birthday greeting.

I kept the card monochromatic, using just Primrose Petals, stamped off to create the lighter tones on the flower and just coloured in a few stamens on each bloom

I don't often use flowers on my cards, but when I do it is often using this two step stamping set. I do like the effect it creates. Fussy cutting out the two blooms and using foam pads on one gives some easy layers whilst keeping things CAS with lots of white space.
Just noticed the date I'm scheduling this post for and it is my wedding anniversary today! 26 years! I expect we will be celebrating somewhere, it will be ' Our Day'.


  1. Gorgeous card Louise - what a fab sketch too - Jacqueline xx

  2. loving the pretty pinks, these sort of colours always remind me of strawberries and cream. Congrats on your anniversary, enjoy the day wherever you are.

  3. Your monochromatic take on the sketch is so pretty with those lovely flowers! Happy anniversary!
