The last Heart 2 Heart challenge of the month is to create something that is clean and simple, so I got out February's Stamp of the Month and started to play. It does not really show in the photos that I embossed some of the images in gold. I had to take the photos with my phone because my "real" camera with the bounce flash is acting up.
This first card may not meet a purist's definition of CAS because it has some embellishments, but the ladies at Heart 2 Heart are allowing for some leeway. I used a black ShinHan marker to fill in the petals of the flower before adding the sparkle to the center.
For this second version I had so much trouble centering the solid black stamp that I ended up stamping it on a scrap and cutting it out with a one inch circle punch:
The sentiments come from the Variety of Thanks set which is available only as a hostess reward through March 31st. I love all the curly cues! Thank you for stopping by! Until next time, Hansi
