You've either happened upon Taylored Expressions' Blast From the Past Blog Hop or you're here from another site on the hop. Whichever, WELCOME, I'm so glad you stopped by!
This month's challenge is to make a CAS card. I love to make CAS cards, but I'm not so sure this one qualifies. I'm using Taylored Expressions' April Key Ingredients Kit and I can't stop using these sweet roses! So, more embellishments than a "true" CAS card, but I tried to hold back, really I did! ;-)
I'm using an image from Taylored Expressions' Summer Afternoon stamp set, inked up with Memento Dandelion ink, then I inked up the stems with a SU! Old Olive marker, huffed, and stamped. Then I cut it out with a Classic Oval Nestabilities die and matted it with a scalloped layer. I tied on that sweet yellow gingham ribbon and added some flat backed pearls from the kit, stitched around the edge, and stamped the sentiment from A Year Of Sweet Sentiments.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out all the other stampers on the hop!
