CASology #92: Garden


It’s time for a new cue word challenge over at CASology!  This time, we’re going to visit the GARDEN and see what we can dig up for creativity!

I actually found a sentiment I liked and went from there.  It just so happened that the sentiment was part of a floral set.

Stamps:  Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps (Hibiscus 2)

I layered a piece of black cardstock behind the main panel in a way to add a little interest and to bring out the black accents in the design.  The flower is popped up with foam dots to add dimension and three black gemstones were added to the center of it.  Remember, three is a magic number in design!

Take a moment to visit the design team members’ blogs!  They’ve been hard at work, creating inspiration for this week’s challenge!  They’d love to hear from you!


Be sure and link up your own CAS creation on the challenge blog by Monday at NOON (CDT) for your chance to win this week’s prize from Stamps and Scrapbooks!

Have a terrific Tuesday!
