Fresh Foliage

It sketch challenge time at The Paper Players this week and Jaydee has come up with a wonderful sketch that can go in so many different directions.  Check it out:


Once again I went CAS with my card.


I just got a wee pile of new Memory Box dies so I went through the pile and chose the Surely Stitched Circle die and the Fresh Foliage dies and my card came together in about 10 minutes!

I used the circle die to cut the panel from the white card base and then adhered some Slate cardstock behind the card front.

The sentiment was stamped with Slate ink and then the foliage was added to the top.  Easy!



Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the design team have some wonderful interpretations of this fun sketch so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Friendship Messages (SSS)
Ink:  Slate (SSS)
Cardstock:  White, Slate (SSS)
Accessories:  Fresh Foliage die, Surely Stitched Circle dies (Memory Box), Enamel Dots

Cheers
Karren

OOoo! Looks like you are having fun with those new dies! If every card turns out as lovely as this one, then they were definitely a good investment.

Karren, this card makes my CAS loving heart sing a happy tune! I love the green, black and white color scheme. I love the green leaves on top of the black circle and I love that you added the three green enamel dots to even up the colors. GORGEOUS. Thank you for rocking my challenge this week

Forgive me my late visit this week Karren - this card truly is CAS perfection! So crisp, clean and graphic - the green really 'pops' against the black and white background.
