Happy Wednesday, everyone! I have a CAS Valentine card (almost the last one, LOL!) today and it uses the sketch from Hand-Stamped Sentiments along with the colors from CAS Colours & Sketches:
I had several ideas in mind for a card but since the color challenge is a CAS challenge, I decided to go mostly white with a few accents in the challenge colors. So here we go:
I used several retired products on top of my Stitched Greenery panels: the circular "wreath" and flowers are from a set called Perfectly Wrapped. The Mint Macaron leaves are from the Pierced Blooms dies. The little envelope and love notes are from a set called Sealed With Love, along with the matching Love Note dies:
I added some rhinestones, colored with Blends, to the centers of the flowers. And the inside sentiment and hearts are also from Sealed With Love:
It took a while for Sweet Sorbet to grow on me, but now I really love it! It's a pretty shade of red!
And speaking of red, this little lady flashed outside my window yesterday but she flew away when she heard my camera...and I was inside!!! The picture is a little blurry because I was taking it through the screen:
The male pileateds have a red moustache, so I knew this one was a female. She's come to visit several times this winter! Look at those claws!
Thanks for visiting today--enjoy it and be blessed!

This is so sweet, LeAnne! Love all the different elements you used to create this! Sealed with Love was a favorite of mine and loaded with lots of nice sayings! Love the colors you used as well! I need to get my cards addressed and sent out today. Thanks for reminding me since Valentines Day is less than week away! Acck! Have a great day!
LeAnne I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing all your Valentines but this one takes the cake of CAS design - my favorite!
If you can, follow this little lady back to your woods - she might just have a nest close by! You'll be surprised how BIG the holes are where they build them!
So pretty and a great take on the sketch. Love your cute little cluster in the corner and the way you divided the Stitched Greenery panel.
I love your CAS love note card! What a great pic of your bird friend!
Nice card, LeAnne! I'm glad I have Sealed with Love!
Cool bird! Love the plume!
This card is about as close to perfection as you can get! I love the whole stitched background with the stitched leaves on the flowers, and the dotted circle. They all work together so wonderfully! Thanks for playing along with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
This is just fabulous LeAnne! I love the pops of colour from your little collection of stamped images and they look fabulous against the split white panels - stunning! Thanks for playing with us over at CAS Colours & Sketches this week!
I don't think you've ever made a card I didn't like, and this is no exception!! It's so beautiful!! Love the stitched background, and the pop of color in the circle!!
What a sweet Valentine! I like the CAS design and the pierced background! Yes, look at her claws, that girls got some big feet!!
I love little groupings of elements - and yours is just perfect! I love the itty bitty envelope with the sweet flowers!
Wow, LeAnne, this is CAS perfection! Love the white panels, such a great look with that die, and your little cluster of color elements is darling! Thanks so much for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
Love the three panels LeAnne, made pretty with that stitched die. The pop of colour in that gorgeous focal cluster is so effective too. What an amazing bird that is! I was too busy looking at her red beanie to notice her claws!! Vicky x
Adorable card LeAnne! I love how creative you were with the "wreath", great idea! The little envelope is so cute! Isn't nature so beautiful when we take the time to enjoy it! I have never seen a bird like that! Thanks for joining the hand stamped sentiments challenge!
I know I commented on this gorgeous card but it seems to have landed in the netherworld...lol....I love everything about this! Perfect Vallentine!
Beautiful card!! I love the way you combined our challenge colors with that sketch, the elegant texture on the background is amazing! Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S!
I love the sweet simplicity! Thank you for joining us at HSS!
A beautiful CAS card, Leanne. The Stitched Greenery die adds such a pretty element to the all-white background. Cheers, Jolanda - DT
