CASology #96: FLOWER


Today is the beginning of a brand new cue word challenge over at CASology and it’s all about flowers!  Lots of beautiful designs are going to come out of this one!

Here’s what I came up with:

I stamped a simple floral silhouette image in black and then added a little yellow butterfly that I’d added glitter to and fussy cut.  I love black and white with a pop of color!  You’ll notice that the elements of this design form a visual triangle, something that is desirable in a CAS design.

Head on over to the design team blogs and the guest designer’s blog this week to see what CAS design tips they have for you as they explain their designs!

Guest Designer:  Hazel

Then, don’t forget to link up your own flower creation over on the challenge blog by Monday at NOON (CDT) for a chance to win this week’s prize from Serendipity Stamps, this week’s sponsor!  They have lots of new spring images in their store!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    What a perfect design Melissa and I love your splash of yellow.

    Thank you for the lovely comment you left for me. Like you, I haven't been able to visit in Blogland as much as I'd like just lately and have missed your blog too. I love your cards of course but also your wonderful photos. Hugs, Vicky x
