The Flower Challenge #5 - CASEing Therese Calvird (Guest DT)

For those who know me, you know how much I LOVE flowers - of any kind !

So it's no surprise that this new Challenge Blog caught my eye when it was launched a short time ago - The Flower Challenge

One thing that appeals to me is the length of time one is allowed to play along - a WHOLE MONTH! With my busy schedule, we are the perfect match.

I'm happy to say that I finally got around to joining the fun after seeing the amazing inspiration card created by the talented Therese Calvird, who is this month's Guest Design Team Member:

Isn't this card simply divine? I love how elegant she makes this CAS card design!

I CASE'd her sweet LO, as well as adding colour to the negative space left by a floral diecut and how she added the sentiment to come up with this:

I used Altenew's Peony Bouquet, and stamped the flower image in the negative space left by the matching die. The greenery was stamped on the top panel. My Misti made it all come together in a pinch (ummm .... OK, maybe a few pinches LOL). Simon Says Stamp's Wishing Sentiments and die from their "Together Forever" release supplied the lovely Birthday sentiment.

I urge you to go check out not only the fabulous cards that the DT has to inspire us, but also the wonderful challenge entries (linked here). Talent definitely abounds! In fact, I may be tempted to give this challenge another try :-)

So sweet of you to pop in for a wee visit today! Hope to see you again soon.
