Addicted to CAS Challenge #117




Hi there blog friends,
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS and this time I am playing Hostess! I thought long and hard about a code word and finally decided on 'One Layer Card' ~ challenging, right?


We also have an incredibly talented and super sweet Guest Designer ~ Pam Sparks!
And, don't forget that we always have a great prize for our winner and this time it's a $10.00 voucher from STAMPlorations

OK...on to my one layer card:


These blooms are called 'Fancy Flowers' and they're from MFT's December Card Kit. There are so many beautiful flowers in this set, and I think this one works well on a single layer and colored with Prismacolor Pencils. I didn't use Gamsol to blend the colors because I like the sketchy look with shades of gray. I also used Stone Gray cardstock for my card base, and this gorgeous Avery Elle Sentiment was a birthday gift from my dear friend, Loll! Thank you again, Loll...I love it!

If you would like to play along, stop over at the Addicted to CAS Challenge Blog ~


Thanks so much for stopping by,

Hello Barb,

Congrats on being Hostess!

I think your subtle florals which you colored with pencil crayons (I think) really is effective. What a lovely card. Hope you have lots of creative time for the end of summer.
