CASology Week 186 Challenge And Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

I am combining a couple of challenges today.  

First, the CASology challenge.

And Second, This weeks Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

This Weeks Simon Says Stamp challenge is Anything Goes! 

For this challenge I thought I thought I would make a card for a neighbor who is going through a touch time, and has been dealing with the effects of Cancer for a few years.  I thought I would just drop her a note to let her know I am thinking of her.  

I once again wanted to make a card that was easy to mail and the CASology challenge prompt gave me the perfect jumping off point.  

I started by first using the Papertrey Ink stencil from the Color Pop kit.  Then added some extra dimension to the sponged flowers with the coordinating stamps.  I finished with a sentiment from MFT.

February Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Hello Friends
I am playing along with this months PTI blog hop. 

I love this months inspiriation photo. So many different elements and textures. 


I love the softness of the greens and the pop of pink.  I think the flower on the right just spoke to me and said In Bloom, an older but beautiful PTI Set I just love. 

I started by using this beautiful PTI cover plate (ok, I have no idea what it's called but I'm pretty sure it is an exclusive from SAF). Then I masked off the inside rectangle and stamped my images.  I then colored them with copic markers.  Then finished with the sentiment across the center. 

I thought about fixing some of the lighter lines in the top flower, but then I thought it just adds to the softness that the photo shows. 

Very clean and simple card, that will mail easily.
