Very CAS

How CAS can you get?

I am case-ing a card for the QFTD #52 on Splitcoaststampers. Her name is Connie aka stamp300. Here is her card. I made a few changes but used a birdhouse as she did...something I love.

I stamped a birdhouse and also a branch alongside the sentiment. Made a score at the top, tied some twine, added a button, colored the birdhouse and that's it!

My card is entered into these challenges:  Digi Doodle Shop's Best #51-Anything Goes
Clear it Out Tuesday #2-Buttons
Paper Sundaes #60-Keep it Simple

Stamps: Hero Arts-Birds and Branches (barrel of 18 small stamps)
Paper: PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! chocolate chip cardstock
Ink: Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip
Accessories: twine, button from Jo-Ann Stores, Scor-Pal, Copics

It's All About Spring-Stampin' B's

This week Emily Keaton is hostess for the Stampin B's Design Team challenge #102 and asked that we make a thank you card using spring colors-one color must be pink. I colored my flowers pink but kept fooling around with colors until I think they look salmon. But, there are some pink roses, Emily.

We hope you'll join the Stampin' B's this week, and if so, please link on our blog with the inlinkz tool.

I am using the sketch for this card from Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #102:
This was a fun sketch and would love to use it again.

My card also fits the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #109 to use butterflies.
Who doesn't love those creatures and they give a promise of Spring and Summer.

Papertake Weekly Challenge is Trio-Tastic-Use three of something (I have used three roses)
