Feel Better

Hello, my friends. Just a quickie from me. I made this card for a friend who's under the weather.The plan was to make a simple card but then I was possessed by the spirit of anti-CAS. I fought back, spun my head and hurled out pea-soup ... alas! All in vain.  My card looks like this:


I started by sponging the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass in the top half and Tea Dye in the bottom. The flowers and leaves are stamps and dies by Clearly Besotted. I adhered the design piece on a stripy panel which I made by stamping Diagonal Stripes with Tea Dye ink on kraft card.

You can see in the close-up below that I did some inlay die-cutting for the 3 pink flowers. The purple flowers an the leaves are all die-cut and adhered on the card.  To finish and put little dots if Liquid Pearls all over. So much for doing CAS! :) And to think I was inspired by Happy Little Stampers March CAS challenge where Sponging in the theme this month!

  12. Very pretty get well card Asha even if it didn't make the CAS design you originally wanted, lol. I often get carried away when I make a card and veer completely off track from the design in my head.
