Going CAS at Just Us Girls

It's our Last Challenge of the year at
 Just Us Girls and Bobby is Hosting our
CAS Challenge and chose the prompt - 
In a Circle.

I must admit this card was made long ago
when my girlfriend was visiting.
When I saw this challenge come up on our DT blog
I knew I wanted to keep it for this one.
It is using a technique I have wanted to play with
for a long time  and we finally did together.
You will all remember Eileen Godwin with her
masking of colours that we all loved.
I used Tim's Destress inks and the vellum
die cut flower was one my girlfriend bought
that we both used. 
Certainly CAS - finishing with a pearl
in the centre of the flower.
Our Guest Melissa and the Team have created such 
super fun wonderful inspiring cards and we would 
love to see yours in the Gallery for the last time this year.
A big Thank You to Melissa for sharing her talents
with us as our November Guest. 

Thanks for all the lovely comments this year.
I really appreciate them.
Merry Christmas 
See you in January to do it all again.

Something Beautiful!

 I recently came across the Beautiful Blossoms blog 
thanks to Design Team Member Darlene.
It's all about flowers/florals with an optional mood board.
The current challenge has a stunning colourful one with 
Details Here to check out.

and a close up showing the shimmer a little better.

Those that know me are aware of how I love a colour challenge
and this one above with those gorgeous blooms caught my eye.
I recently purchased the lotus leaf die set and
unwrapped it to create this CAS card.
A nice break from Christmas cards.
I used watercolour paper colouring my flower with
Lindy's Cowabunga Copper
Cattail Copper Brown and
Glory of the Sea Gold.
Memory Box Pinpoint Double Frame
popping the centre piece.
Flower was cut twice and offset for interest.
Added a black pearl, small leaf and 
strips on the side for more colour.
Finished with my sentiment inked in
Versafine Clair Nocturne heat embossed clear.
With such lovely mood board colours and
plenty of time left to play I am sure I will be 
back over at the Beautiful Blossoms Challenge again soon
after I add my card above to their Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in

Sweater Weather at the Sisterhood

 It's 'Sweater Weather' in the North
and that is our Theme at

I went in a different direction with this card
as I  don't have any 'real sweater' stamps in my stash.
 Tim's Holiday Knits stencil came to the rescue.
I added colour and texture with
Cosmic Shimmer Golden Olive Metallic Gilding Polish
My Paper Smooches Merry Christmas Die
was cut several times for depth and adhered to vellum.
Framed and adhered to white base.
The Sistah's have created fabulous sweater cards
for your inspiration and I am sure you will
want to add yours to the Gallery.
See you there!
