CASology #138: Clean and Simple One-layer Card

CASology #138: Clean and Simple One-layer Card

Happy Tuesday! It’s time for a new challenge over at CASology. Here is this week’s cue card:
Week 138 - Blossom

My inspiration came from a bunch of dried flowers hanging on the wall. I thought getting older is like flowers being dried. It loses moisture, gets wrinkles, and the color becomes deeper as the petals dry. It may not be having any fragrance, but we still remember that each flower had a glorious moment in the life. Without further ado, here is my take on BLOSSOM:

I created my own dried flowers using a variety of smaller botanical images from Dala Horse set. Then I stamped the string and clip images from Jumpstart My Heart set.

After coloring the images with Copic markers, I finished it off with the sentiment from Giving Tree set. “Wrinkles should merely indicate where the smiles have been.” I think my dried flowers really go with the sentiment. What do you think?

Now it’s your turn to play along. As always, you can interpret the cue word literally or go for something a bit more outside the box. There is a wonderful prize up for grabs from Craft Classes Online and the winner will have a chance to guest design on the next challenge – more details are on the CASology blog. Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!
