Wishing for Spring


Today’s SCS CAS54 Challenge was to make a card for spring! For my first attempt, my brain just did not want to do CAS!  So I regrouped, checked a few Fall to Layouts from the Clean and Simple blog and decided on FTL#68:

Fall to Layout #68


This uses some DP from my stash—it is a solid deep coral on this inside—and the flower is from Best Wishes & More; sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.  I distressed the edges of my Rose Red panel and dyed my white organdy ribbon with a Cameo Coral marker.  I have left the inside blank; I’ll just add the appropriate sentiment when I need a card!


Now here’s my original card; I used my new Abundant Hope set; this is a get-well card for a friend from church:


I used some Tea Party DP, wide grosgrain and non-SU pearls; image is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with reinkers using an Aquapainter.  I did a light sponging around my nestie to give it a little backgroun interest, and I also lightly stamped it with Itty Bitty Backgrounds.

Thanks for visiting today---we’re gearing up for some more snow! ONLY 2-4”!!! 



  1. Ugh, more snow? I don't envy you! Your cards are great...very springy!
