Celebrate Today with ATCAS

Here's a super quick and CAS card.

I punched the blossom out of the white card front.
Then I embossed the card front with the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder.
I place a scrap of Decorative Paper behind the outcut?
(I'm never sure which is the outcut and which is the cutout.)

I sponged some yellow on the cutout flower and used a brad to fasten it
to the card front and adhered it all to the front of the card.
(Somehow my sponging always looks messy to me. 
Wish I could get the hang of it!)

A fussy cut stamped banner finished it off.

I'm taking it over to

Lovely card Bonnie, I like the way you have set the blossom in the aperture and the contrast between the floral scrap and the white. Elizabeth xx

Love the look of the patterned paper behind such a bold and beautiful flower! Beautiful card.

Your sponging does NOT look messy at all! Love this pretty floral, and I don't know from outcuts, I just call it the negative part,or the positive part! That dots paper behind the die flower is very cheery & really set off the yellow center. Looked like a flower garden at first glance. Of course you already know I love that Dots EF and all of the above tied in with this beautiful turquoise blue...yummy card. TFS & Hugs

What a clever idea Bonnnie to use the die cut plus the hole it left (my term!!). You sponging looks fine to me - I'm with Sue there!

Thank you for coming to play again - lemonade is in a pitcher under the shade of the playhouse :)

Hugs, Di xx

It wasn't till I read the wording that I realised exactly how you had made this card! Very clever. I like the colours you have put together. Hugs Mrs A.

I was just thinking that your sponged looked fabulous and wishing I could get the hang of it like you when you said you thought it was messy. Not so!!!! This is a very lovely and simple card. Now that you've mentioned it I never thought about which is the outcut or the cutout before. I'm just going to have to come up with whole new words to not deal with it. Punched piece and the hole. There you go.
