Here is a card that I have created to help inspire you...

General information:
  • Today I a showcasing a more CAS card.  As I've mentioned previously, I want to try and do more clean and simple layouts.  I just find them so elegant.  
  • This card was inspired by a layout I saw over at Your Next Stamp Challenges by one of their team members, Peggy.  It was such a lovely CAS design and I thought it would be perfect for this card although I didn't use string like she did.  With the size of my image, it just didn't work out.  However, I have kept it shades of purple so that I can enter their challenge which is thankfully on until the end of August.  Check out the great inspirational photo they have.  Look at all that yummy purple and there are flowers on the cupcake as well, just like in my image: 
Digital Image Details: 
  • Flower Planter:  The main image on the front is the Flower Planter which was part of the April new release.The image is currently available in the FBD store.  You can find it by clicking on the image name or watermark below.
    • The image was coloured in with Copic Markers.  Copious amounts of glitter was added to the flowers and around the edge of the matting.  Then the image was fussy cut out and added to the front. 
Digital Sentiment: 
  • One I created.  I layered it right on to the paper before printing.  I even added a glitter layer style to give it that much more sparkle.

Digital Sentiment: 
  • Once again, just something I created specifically for this card.

Paper Products: 
  • Image and sentiment base:  Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • Card base:  Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, Passion Fruit collection.
Digital Paper Products: 
  • I created this purple ledger paper especially for this card using a template from Janet Scott, picked up over at Pixel Scrapper.
Challenges I hope to enter...
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  I hope you have the chance to go and check out the Flower Planter image I used, along with all the other great images available in the store.  I also hope you get the chance to enter our current challenge.
