CAS-Colour and Sketches #15

Happy Friday Eve my crafting chums,

This week at CAS-Colour and Sketches we have the following colour combo for you:

I thought this combo was perfect for a Mother's Day card. As both my Mum and MIL love flowers I decided to use my new SU 'secret garden' stamps and framelits. I just layered these using foam pads to give dimension and then added a button that actually came from my Mum's old button tin!
I added this sweet little sentiment from PTI and was going to leave the card like this but it just didn't look quite right to me. I decided it needed a ribbon but it was too late as the flowers were stuck down! After a bit of messing around I went for a single stamped chevron and love how it turned out!!

See what you think?

I do like how a little curved corner just adds that little extra to a CAS card.

Our DT have some great cards to inspire you so take a pop over to our blog here and get stamping!

I will also enter this into the 'anything goes' challenge at ABC challenges
