ATCAS Challenge #81 - Bloom

I'm getting ready to head off to another tennis match.  The season has started and the rain has stopped for the moment so today's match should be a go...wish me luck!

We also have a challenge over at Addicted to CAS. Come over and join in!  Our host for this challenge is Bhavana and we have a wonderful sponsor Eureka Stamps!  Come on over and see what the team has come up with and play along!

Here's what I came up with...

I decided to make a card with all dies and no stamping!

I started off my die cutting the leaves with a light green card stock.  I then used distressed ink to provide some shading.  I then decided to cut the same leaves with vellum to provide a bit of depth.  I then die cut the flowers in a variety of pink/red colors. I added a bit of distressed ink to the flowers as well.

I die cut the sentiment and adhered that to the bottom of the card...then added a few sequins to the middle of each flower.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!


  1. Such a sweet card, Susan! I love your choice of foliage and blooms and your sentiment is fabulous!
