Addicted to CAS - Delicate

What a great tennis day...won my match...yeah!  All do to the great practice from the husband. Thanks husband...wish me luck for my next match on Sunday!!

Time for another challenge over at Addicted to CAS.  The theme for this week is Delicate.  So many great options here, it was a bit hard to narrow it down.  But in the end, I opted to use a die that hasn't seen much use, but is perfect for this challenge.

I started by die cutting the flower image then coloring it with my copic markers.  I then cut the background squares and did a quick little inlaid technique.  I then adhered the die to the background, popped up the squares on foam tape and added the sentiment.

I really like this delicate die and like how the card turned out.

Come on over and join the challenge.  We would love to see what you come up with!

  • Bazzill Cardstock:  Spearmint
  • Off white cardstock
  • Sentiment:  Mama Elephant
  • Stitched Square Dies:  Lawn Fawn
  • Flower Die:  Simon Says Stamps
  • Copic Markers
  • Avery Elle Pigment Ink:  Fog
