CASology Challenge - Blossom

Hi everyone, a really quick post from me today...

Firstly, I want to wish everyone a happy 1st Day of Spring! Sure wish it felt like spring outside, since we got about four inches of snow today! But, the good news is that it's time to play along with one of my favorite challenges: CASology and the cue card for this week is 'Blossom'! Here is my card:




I thought the flower was plain by itself, so I started by embossing around the circle, then stamping the flower and sentiment. I simply added a few sequins and matted the panel on to a yellow card base...and that was it!

Wishing you all a fun and crafty weekend ~ Thanks so much for stopping by.

Oooo, love this card, Barb! Beautiful flower and wonderful texture in the background! Boo for the snow! We are so lucky here in Minnesota - absolutely no snow on the ground. Hoping your days get warmer and sunnier soon! ♥

This is beautiful! Ok, your stamping is perfection!!! Do you use a Misti??? How did you do that embossing only on the outside of the circle??? You are one mysterious little crafter, aren't you? ha ha!!
