Thanks - Challenges

No Sunday bike ride today...gotta let the body rest for a few extra days, lots of riding, and tennis matches over the last week that an extra day of rest will help these old bones!  Instead, a bit of gardening and a little relaxing watching the Women's World Cup Soccer---looking forward to the Canada v. Switzerland game in a bit.'s my post for today.

Less is More is focusing on using stencils for the next challenge--and since I love using stencils and molding paste this challenge is right up my alley; and

Freshly Made Sketches posted this sketch, so why not combine the two!
For my card, I started with the flowered stencil and used molding paste on white card stock.  I then die cut the "Thanks" sentiment---I didn't like the flat look of the yellow card stock, so I used a bit of distressed ink to give it some depth. I then adhered the sentiment to fun foam to give it some pop and ensure it doesn't get lost in the flowers.  I was going to add a few sequins, but that was just a bit too much!  I decided to leave it a simple.  A true Clean and Simple Card!

  • Bazzill Card Stock:  Marshmallow, Easter Grass, Grapefruit Bliss
  • Liquitex Flexible Molding Paste
  • Lawn Fawn Die:  Scripty Thanks
  • Distressed Ink:  Spiced Maramalade
  • Stencil:  Crafters Workshop Mini Daisy Cluster


  1. This is sooo pretty! I love the way the sentiment looks against the embossed flowers! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. Very CAS indeed and a great idea to add colour and dimension to the sentiment


  3. Crisp, CAS, elegant and totally gorgeous stencilling teamed with the pop of colour and dimension to the sentiment. Love it. You might like to link up at AAA Cards too as we have a stencil and paste challenge this week.
    Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.
