Addictted to CAS Challenge #84


Hi there blog friends ~ This post was written and scheduled well in advance, so before I begin, I want to apologize if I have not had a chance to stop by and visit your blog...I was hit with the Flu about a week ago, and have spent most of this time nursing myself back to health! I promise to visit you as soon as possible! 

Also, I want to thank everyone who sent me messages of good wishes and prayers! Hopefully, I will be back to my 'old self ' in the next few days!

********* 

OK...It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, and this week, our Code Word is Delicate...Here are the deets:

Our Hostess: Sweet Kobylkin
Our Guest Designer: TaeEun
Our Sponsor: Happy Little Stampers who is offering a $15.00 Gift Card to the Store.


Here is my card:





I love the delicate flowers and butterfly in this Altenew Botanical Garden stamp set, and thought they would be perfect for this challenge. I stamped them in black onto watercolor cardstock, and did some loose watercoloring. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted, and stitched frame is from Mama Elephant.

So, that's it for me...I hope you'll find some time to stop by the Addicted to CAS Challenge Blog and play along!





Have a great weekend,
