CAS get well wishes

Please scroll down to see my first LMM DT card and details of the fab new release!

Here's a quick card I put together in 40 minutes or so.
I already had the image printed for this card, all I had to do was colour it in, and assemble the elements of the layout , which is for this months card making challenge at Auntys forum. I knew I wanted to use this image when I saw Kathy's CAS sketch, although originally I intended to fussy-cut out the daisies, but just as I was about to put scissors to card I decided they'd look better within the frame instead.

The image is from Beccy's Place, coloured with promarkers, who also has a flowers theme challenge this month, i'm just in time to enter this card as the closing date is 30th April.
The sentiment is from SU's fun and fast notes stamp set.
I didn't have any plain green or deep yellow cardstock at hand, so I used white card and then grabbed two promarkers that i'd used for the image to colour a thin border around the edge so that it would match perfickly. Good tip that eh?
I added polka dots with dovecraft back to basics paper pack, and my swiss dots embossing folder which I used on the scalloped circle piece which is tucked beneath the top of the image.
I'd also like to enter this at:
Totally Gorjuss - embossing
Kaboodle Doodles - spring
I love Promarkers - square card with something round on it.
Penny's challenges - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp challenge - anything goes
Charisma Cardz - polka dots

thanks for looking :) xx

  8. Loved your card so much, I rushed over to Becky's place and bought 3 designs! Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Oh that's a lovely thing to say, thank you Lesley :)
      I love Beccy's flowers especially, I made a card last month using her 'blossoms' image, and received some lovely comments then too, try layering the flowers for extra depth, the end result is beautiful. I intend to do that with this image next time, but wanted one layer this time to fit in with the CAS theme, which is the reason I didn't fussy cut it either.
      Happy Crafting! xx
