Every Day is a Gift

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

And here is my take:

Every Day | by karen @ carefree creations

For my card, I stamped the branch and flowers with color and then went back over them with Versamark and clear embossing powder, finishing with a quick zap with my heat gun. The blue is lightly sponged on over the embossing.

The sentiment is a straight image, so I cut mine up so I could stamp in this configuration.

It snowed like crazy over the weekend, and I woke up to more today. Stamping some cherry blossoms was just the thing I needed!

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love the added clear embossing the the blossom on the tree, beautiful accent, subtle but so effective. FAB use of the challenge colours and beautiful CAS card. Hugs Bev x

  2. I find it interesting how we sometimes have similar themes in the DT – butterflies and blossoms this week! I also nearly went with emboss resist! Anyway, this is a lovely CAS card, I love those blossoms and your stitching details and white on white layering give it such a classy and elegant feel. Gorgeous! Caro x
