Gerbera Daisies

I made this card earlier in the week for the CAS287 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The challenge is to do coloring. So, I got out my Copics and went to work. This isn't quite as CAS as I usually do but the challenge police did not come after me. :-)

Now, I think I'll enter this card into the Power Poppy Peep of the Week challenge.  Gosh, Power Poppy has the most beautiful stamps!!!

Recipe:
Stamps-Power Poppy/Glads and Gerberas stamp set
Paper-PTI white cardstock, Bazzill Paper Basics/blk, Coredinations/Little Blue Small Dot
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Copics

This card went out into the mail to my sister very fast. Some hang around here for a long time. I did get seventy-six cards mailed off recently to a friend who takes them to a hospital...good cause. 

My next card to post will be a Christmas card. I'm ready to get started on those and get some snowmen made.

Have a wonderful day.

I keep trying to get Christmas cards done too - and then remember it's going to be Halloween soon! Gotta get some of those done for the grands first I guess.
I love those daisies and know your sister will too! So pretty in all that wonderful and beautiful blue. Love your card!

A great example of artistic excellence. I always thought CAS meant as little as possible to get the job done. Can't an excellent job like this and not color. - Jim
