Flourishing Phrases CAS Colours & Sketches #182

I enjoy challenges because they really get my juices flowing.
very nice options, including this current challenge.


This is a simple challenge, but did require some thought.
I felt that the Fourishing Phrases set on page 49 would
enable a great CAS card.

 I did 2 versions of this card.  The one above is VERY CAS,
on a single layer, the one below layered on to a 
Very Vanilla card base.

This sample uses Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz with the
Flourishing Phrases set on page 49. 
The Flourishing Phrases set has so many great sentiments, it was simply a matter of picking one.   I added spatters from
Gorgeous Grunge and the card was pretty much done!

 For the card above, I stamped the images with Blushing Bride and 
Mint Macaron (stamped off once). I know that it looks sort of faded, but in real person, the subtle colors work well with
the Basic Black sentiment.

Doesn't it feel as if the simple challenges are the hardest?! But I really like what you've done here with the flourishing phrases Jackie. Thanks for joining us at CAS Colours & Sketches this week. Liz x

I'm a bit of a one for splatter myself behind a main focal image and love both your card versions. Thanks for playing at CC&S.

Two very pretty cards! The splatter background shows off those blossoms so nicely. Thanks for making CC&S part of your crafting fun!
