Tea or Soup?

Hi fellow crafters,

Hope your weekend is going well. I have had a fun day crafting. I have a CAS card to share. I actually did some paper piecing. I had done some earlier in the week when making a card for my DT and surprised myself how much I enjoyed it. So today gave it a go again, making a card inspired, firstly by this picture at Paper Smooches Sparks challenge:

I was inspired by the soft blue used plus the very sharp lines of the frame. I have tried to replicate these lines in my card but to soften it used the baby blue from the vase. I have used all Paper Smooches stamps in my card and some that I have been itching to ink up.

I stamped the question mark but now realise it is too big and I should have just used pen but a few mistakes make us human right? I am not too happy with this card but I enjoyed doing it and one to add to my stash for when needed.

I will also enter this into the following challenges:

Less is More-drinks
Hot Shot Crafts-CAS (a new challenge to me and what a cool name!)
Daring Card Makers-paper piecing-a challenge I have not been entered for a while (hello Sharon-how are you??)

Happy Stamping x
