FS473, Muse 154, CTS161 - Thank You



This week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper is rokale (AKA Rose). Her gallery is absolutely full of the most adorable Christmas cards, but I resisted and chose this non-Christmas card as my inspiration:



I am combining this week's FS Challenge with this week's Muse Challenge, where Jenni gave us this pretty spring inspiration:



and also CAS(E) This Sketch:



I focused on Rose's:
-theme (floral thank you)
-script sentiment
-watercolour 'look'

I changed:
-layout
-size/shape of card
-added a layer
-colours

I focused on Jenni's:
-colour scheme
-tall flowers on the left
-use of a square

I used:
- Stampin' Up Painted Petals
- Technique Tuesday (Ali Edwards) Thank you
-MFT Pierced Square die

(if this post looks familiar, it's because I accidentally published it not just once, but TWICE before I was supposed to - apologies to all involved!). My mistake made me rethink my card - here's my original take, using Ellen Hutson's Many Thanks die and Simon Says Stamp Mini Flowers and Leaves:

Such a pretty pair of flowers, Ardyth. This sweet card just calls out, "Springtime!!" Very lovely. Love the font on that sentiment too. Have a great week. Bev

Wonderfully pretty card! But I'm also impressed when someone uses one card for multiple challenges - something I aspire to do!
