Can You Case it? Design Team - Sketch Challenge CYCI #67

Happy Sunday!  What is this?  I really thought it was spring but it’s been downright cold, really hope this doesn’t last long.  Of course, just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy all the beauty of spring.  For this weeks Can You Case It? Sketch challenge we were given the theme of Mother’s Day, which naturally leads us to flowers.  I know I shared recently how I’ve fallen in love with the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper so it was a natural selection for this card.

I started with Sahara Sand cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.  For the main stamped image I used the Crazy about You stamp set and stamped the leaves in Wild Wasabi ink and the “Mother’s Day” in Pacific Point ink.  I used the coordinating framelits to cut out the happy using Rich Razzleberry cardstock and the Big Shot.  I matted this layer with Pacific Point cardstock before wrapping some Wild Wasabi Cotton Twine (from the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine Pack) around the layer and tying a bow.

For a final touch I stamped a flower from the Petite Petals stamp set (using Pacific Point ink and Soft Sky cardstock) and punched it out with the Petite Petals Punch.  I curled the edges of the flower using my bone folder and attached it to the cardfront with a glue dot.  For mom, this card needs a little dazzle so I added a pearl to the center of the flower which is the perfect addition.

I love the colors and different elements in this card, it just makes me smile.  You still have time to finish your cards and projects for the special ladies in your life, don’t wait I can help.  Make sure to check out the other design team creations for further inspiration and then come play along, we love to see what others create.
