FTTC #54--All About ME!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC54)! This week Dee Jackson is our host! Dee is challenging us to "All About Me". Use what you love and what makes you happy!! Use your favorite colors, stamps, layout, and embellishments! Whatever ROCKS your world! We would love to see what you create!

Well, CAS is rockin' my world right now ;-) And, of course, you know I still love me some ribbon and buttons and twine and dimension and bling and lots of other embellishments. And I adore big ol' sentiments. This card is the best of both worlds, I think. I stamped this image from Flourishes' DIY Topiary on some rustic white card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. Then I stamped the planter image twice--once on the topiary image and once on a scrap of paper. I colored each of the images with Copic markers and then tied the ribbon around the card base. Next, I popped the second planter up on Pop Dots and tied on the buttons--this gave the planter great dimension. I then stamped the sentiment, from Timeless Quotes, on the card base with Versafine Sepia ink and again on a scrap with Always Artichoke. Then I cut out the upper case words and popped them up on Pop Dots. You know, I think this card will qualify for the CAS challenge this week: Spring.

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you like my embellished CAS card :) Be sure to check out the other members of the team and see what rocks their world!
