Smiling

I can't believe I've actually got a card made only hours after seeing a challenge.  Jack had to go to the Dr. this morning (he's fine) and it gave me a few extra minutes.


When I saw this card by Darsie that is the inspiration sketch for the CAS challenge at SCS today, I just had to play.  It was an itch that just had to be scratched.  And it didn't take long either.


I used the colors from the Dynamic Duo challenge this week and left off the dessert...


This beautiful flower is from the stamp set Reason to Smile and Stampin' Up! is offering it for $5.00 this month with a $50.00 order.  If you click on the Reason to Smile picture on my sidebar, it'll take you to where you can order.  After this month, it will be gone. 

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Reason to Smile, Happiness Shared (retired)
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, SU Markers (Poppy Parade, River Rock)
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Black
Other:  Linen Thread

I'm working on a tutorial for the watercolor splotches that I did last week.  You can see that card here.  I'm hoping to have it up by the end of the week.


Thanks so much for stopping by.


Enjoy!

I spied your watercolour splodges card get an accolade on the CAS-ology blog - congratulations! This is another CAS masterpiece! The flower really does pop against the black and white, and the linen thread is a perfect finishing touch.
