CASology #138


Welcome to Week 138 of CASology!  Take a look a the cue word for this week:


Sometimes the simplest words give me the most trouble when it comes to this challenge.  You would think that blossom would be a snap because I have a million flower stamps but that's precisely the problem - way too much choice!  I finally managed to narrow down the selection and decided to use this NBUS Hero Arts flower.  I inked it up with Stampin' Write markers and then spritzed it with water before stamping it.  After I'd added the sentiment I felt like it needed a little something extra so I added the twine bow.  It gives the card some dimension and texture and also tiny bow just make me smile.  :)  And now it's your turn to make up smile with what I'm sure will be a gorgeous gallery of blossoming beauties!




And this week's guest designer:

Link your creations to the CASology blog and remember that the deadline for entries is Monday at noon (CST).

I'm also going to enter this card into the Paper Players CAS floral challenge.

Jen, this is beautiful. It's the perfect blend of sincerity and simplicity. As much as we don't like to make these kinds of cards, they are necessary. This one will bring comfort to whomever receives it. Really, really beautiful. Bev
