cas410It’s so nice having a long weekend!  AND still have another day off.  The CAS challenge on SCS is to use new stuff…THAT’s an easy one!  The problem is figuring out which of my new things to use!

I LOVE the Special Reason set and matching thinlits…the flowers are just so awesome!  I decided to keep things nice and simple.  And I just love soft pink flowers.  It’s hard to see from the picture but I used vellum behind flower and sponged the pink on there so I could have different shades of pink.

Here’s the detail…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, run through the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and layer onto Pink Pirouette 3 5/8 x 4 7/8 add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – cut out flower outline
  • Vellum – cut out the full flower, turn over and sponge using Flirty Flamingo, ad the outline on the front and add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/8 x 2 5/8, cut on a slant and add to card front
  • Pink Pirouette – 3/8 x 2 1/4, stamp greeting using Basic Grey, cut into a banner and add to card front
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off.
