Flowery thanks

Hello lovely people,

No time for countdowns today as my little grey cells are entirely focussed on getting my coursework finished and submitted by the end of Friday!


While I am working hard on that last essay, it's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme is...

PEARLS

Don't forget we want to see more pink than any other colour!

Our fabulous sponsor this time is Live and Love Crafts with a £10 voucher (excl. p&p)

I'm back to CAS with this card.

This was one of those occasions where I had a clear design in my head and amazingly it all came together how I wanted without any faffing around...that doesn't happen often with me and CAS cards...

...maybe I'm getting better at them!

Pretty floral CAS thank you card

It's wonderfully rewarding to make a card with so few elements and I do think you can never have too many word dies and little flower dies in your stash!

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Hi Kat - I love this card - your design is gorgeous - such a simple (in a good way) concept, beautifully thought out and put together and a very clever way to use the dreaded pearls!

I've been naughty when it comes to commenting..... I'm just catching up so you'll have to forgive me! Just to say how much I love this stunning CAS design.... it's so very effective, especially with the scripty rose paper behind the deeper panel!

Big hugs
