CAS Happiness

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Ours was very busy with 2 gymnastics meets and other events. I didn't get a chance to do a lot of stamping over the weekend; but I did manage to do this CAS card for the OCL challenge from Friday. The challenge was to not only do a CAS challenge; but to use something clear on your card. I have to admit, I was a bit stumped about this one at first, and then I remembered that I had these little clear epoxy stickers and thought they would be perfect. The flower is from OCL's "Fabulous Florals" I stamped the bottom flower with Pumpkin Pie ink, the middle with Bermuda Bay and then used a Copic Marker (BG10) to fill it in. The top layer of the flower is stamped with So Saffron ink and I used a flower brad from Stampin Up! to hold it all together.
Like I said, CAS; but I must apologize for the less than stellar photograph. No excuse really, just a bit lazy about setting it all up

I am entering this simple little card into the following challenges:

1. Make it Monday: Anything Goes

2. Catered Crop: Recipe Challenge. I chose the following elements from the recipe:
a) Colors: Pastel colors
b) Color Mediums: Copic Marker
c) Embellishments: Brads
d) Tools: Crop-a -dile

3. Let's Ink it Up and The Secret Crafter: Stitching

4. Pile it on: Use rubber stamps (no digis)

5. Crafty Calendar: May flowers

6. Totally Gorjuss: No patterned paper

7. OCL: CAS (use something clear)
