Pastel Pierced Blooms CAS Thank You Card CCS459

by Joanne James1. March 2022 13:00

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. It's the first of March and a new month means a new hostess! Jeanne is hosting this month and our first challenge is a colour challenge: 


Since it's the first of March and St David's Day I feel like I should be using daffodils on my card, but Jeanne's colour choices don't really lend themselves to my national flower! Instead my card today features some pierced blooms and uses the sketch layout over at Fusion:


I used all three colours for my duo of diecut blooms and added them to a simple layered background. A 'thanks' sentiment from 'Artistically Inked' and a trio of Fresh Freesia rhinestones complete today's card and goes across the centre middle row of the Paper Craft Crew TicTacToe board too. 


Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

As a reminder, for our colour challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colours. You may also use neutral colours; however, the challenge colours should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up! color names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colours as closely as possible.

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

I love the big flowers and how you framed your card with the sponged ink.

I can't believe I don't have those dies - but I think your card convinced me that I need them! They are so big and chunky - but you've used them in such a clean and fresh way - I love it!!  Also I have not used Fresh Freesia at all, but you really made it work!
