Bloom with Hope

Bloom2The CAS challenge is such a great on…May flowers!  How can you resist a great theme like that…I know I couldn’t!

Okay…I will have to say that I cheated just a little bit with this one.  I had the flower done and ‘sitting on top of my desk’.  You all know how much I like to create that way!

I will have to say I struggle a bit with the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities but I think this one turned out pretty good.

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 11 folded.
  • Whisper White – 3 /2 x 4 1/4, run through Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and add to card front.
  • Calypso Coral – 4 1/4 x 1 1/2.  Cut into a banner.  Add a strip of Calypso Coral Chevron dsp 1/4 x 4 1/4.  Stamp greeting using Memento Black.
  • Wrap piece of Coastal Cabana twine around banner and add to card front using dimensionals.  Tie bow with the Coastal Cabana twine and add to banner.
  • Stamp flower using Memento Black ink on Whisper White.  Color flower using Coastal Cabana Blendabilities and center using the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities.  Cut out and add to card front using dimensionals.

Oh…I just love using this set and coloring it in with the Blendabilities…just such fun!
