CAS-ual Fridays | Challenge #112

Hi friends! I hope everyone had a restful weekend. I am feeling so much better after spending the last 48 hours on the couch, watching pre-season football and making sure Evan didn't take out my new framed anchor print with his Nerf football. I'm not sure my house is going to survive this kid... he is an accident waiting to happen. :)

I have a new card to share for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge: Aqua, Green, and Orange. I adore this color combo and was anxious to pull out a few new sets from Waltzingmouse for the challenge: Two Step Floral Sprig, Big Day - Today, and the Pinstripe mini background. And I used my Silhouette to cut out the leaves (available from Waltzingmouse), and I am delighted with the results. Very crisp and clean cuts, making the whole card come together quickly. I upgraded my Silhouette so I can cut SVG files and I am so glad I did. That little machine is awesome!



 (Supplies - Stamps: (Waltzingmouse) Two Step Floral Sprig, Big Day - Today, and the Pinstripe mini background. Ink: (PTI) Aqua Mist, Limeade Ice, New Leaf, Orange Zest, Terracotta Tile, Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Black. Cardstock: (PTI) Orange Zest, White. Other: pearls, stickles.)

The latest Waltzingmouse release was one of my favorites... so many beautiful sets! Flowers & nautical themed... two of my favorite things!

That is it for me tonight. Have a great week!

Oooh this is seriously gorgeous, love the combination of WMS font and the bold flowers. I got the Big Day Today stamps just this weekend for my birthday from a lovely crafty pal after waiting so impatiently for more sentiments in this font. This card is so inspiring! Love it! :)

Natty, I LOVE the font of these sentiments!

I can well understand it - I've been using the Best Wishes and Felicitations stamps from Big Day Additions for any suitable non-wedding cards and had been hoping more sentiments would be released in this font. I am so looking forward to playing with so many new greetings! :D

The mix of stamping with chipboard flowers and the sharp black sentiment definitely make this an eye catching card.
