Being With You

this si the card my team made at out meeting last night. Another CAS design, but I think that the upcoming Happiness Is Butterfly Album which I'll post Thursday night for Blog Hop might have sucked all the non-CAS creativity out of my whole body! I love the look of the March SOTM 2 step stamps in Grey and Black - very simple but elegant!
For this card I inked the base image for each flower in Whisper ink using a side to side swiping motion to give the solid stamp some texture. Can you see how it looks almost sanded? Then I added the detail image in Black ink on top, and a few leaves stamped in Whisper ink. The script paper is from For Always, and the bold diagonal stripe is another image from In The Background, which is quickly becoming an indispensable basic tool for me!

I'm linking this card up to this week's MUSE challenge. As I was frantically prepping for my team to come over and play yesterday I got the email from MUSE and fell in love with her clusters of flowers around the edge of the sentiment. I realized that while I love to make 3-D flower clusters, I have to admit that stamping these clusters was a LOT faster and easier!  

I'm also linking up to the Heart 2 Heart Love is in the Air Challenge and the CAS-ual Fridays Hi Ho Silver Challenge. Did you catch that awesome silver Glitter button? A touch of sparkle is what makes my heart flutter!

Until tomorrow friends...yep - I've got new art lined up for you every day this week!
