We would love to see your flowers at Fab'n'Funky this week

Good morning all

It's the lovely Lorraine's turn to host over at 

Fab'n'Funky Challenges 

and she has chosen the theme 

Flower Delights
(use flowers)

I decided to go with a really CAS look
 using the dies stamps and sentiments that came with the new Crafters Inspiration at 
Crafters Companion - available here

I decided to keep it really simple - but that didn't mean quick - ooooh no! 
I can't believe how long it took me to make this card, the stamps and dies were really easy to use - but my head kept on falling out of gear and I just couldn't decide what to do with it!!

We are sponsored by the fabulous Di's digi downloads this week
who are offering a fab prize of $12 to spend in store

Gorgeous card Judith, the poppy looks beautiful in the frame. I always find CAS difficult - always want to add more.

The beautiful poppy has such impact with this lovely CAS design, a fabulous card Judith.
Funny how long it can take to make a 'simple' card, isn't it?!!!

Sarah said...

This is wonderful Judith and you are spot on, CAS does not mean quick by any stretch of the imagination!! There is always far more faffing required I think!! xx

This is beautiful Judith, such an elegant design - CAS always takes me longer, I think you have to plan more rather than let things evolve!
