Staying CAS

Fun to make a one layer card for the Love challenge at Where Creativity Meets C9.  The Love You, Mean It set has such sweet little images, including the 2 sizes of hearts I used here, as well as the sentiment.  
The inks are Brilliance Pearlescent Coral (totally pink even though the name is coral), Rocket Red & Graphite Black.  I added tiny splatters & 3 pink sequins. It did take me 2 tries to get the hearts stamped how I wanted--simple isn't necessarily easy--haha!  I'm also entering AllsortsCAS-ual Fridays & Inkspirational.

Next is my card for the PTI 2007 Challenge.  I don't own any of the featured sets, but I was drawn to Maile's card that also used Watercolor Wonder--a set I do have.  
I used her basic layout stamping my background in Spring Moss & Limeade Ice. The Harvest Berries die cuts were stamped in Berry Sorbet & brushed with Wink of Stella.  
I really love the sentiments in Lovely Leaves & this one is just what I need for a thank you card.  I stamped it in Honey Nut on a scrap of Classic Kraft--same cardstock I used for the card front.  The panel is die cut with AJVD Polka Dot Backdrop Rectangle & I finished off with PPP clear dots. I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with Dies.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

Crisp, clean and stunning is what I see. The sweet heart card could be used for any occasion and the stamped image on the "With gratitude" card reminds me of a maidenhair fern, that my dear Mother used to grow. Lovely, lovely work. TFS
