A second choice card...

I am posting a card that I made for CAS60 on SCS - a sketch based on my fellow-DT member Carly's card. I ended up using another card for that challenge but I still like this one...

Paper: SU (barely banana, sage shadow, basic grey, very vanilla)
Stamps: a muse (it's your day, simple wishes), PTI (Green Thumb)
Ink: Palette hybrid charcoal
Accessories: liquid pearls, pop dots, circle nestibilities, MS scallop punch, ribbon (SU)

I stamped 3 baskets on the circles and embellished the flower centres with liquid pearls. I added the scalloped edge and ribbon to ground the circles. The thing that took the longest was placing the flowers. I played around with that for 1/2 an hour!!

I have a few other cards like this that didn't end up being my first choice for the challenges that I will try to post over the next few weeks. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh I love this one!! Your other card was fabulous too, but this one is simply perfect! It's Friday tomorrow!! Have a wonderful weekend. :-)

Love that you left the baskets of flowers uncolored and then added the little pops of color with the flower embellies. Such a great idea! I also loved seeing my blog (Show and Tell) on your "Get Inspired..." list. Made my day. :) Thanks!

Gorgeous card! I love your choice of papers and the little flowers really pop! I know exactly what you mean about taking ages to make a CAS card, they're definately harder than 'normal' ones!
