Hello Friend

Today's CAS Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers is to make a card following a sketch.  This time the sketch just so happens to mine.
This is the original card:

Now I don't know about you, but I had a difficult time with this one.  I think this is because every time I looked at the card, I had a hard time picturing anything different.  Eventually, an idea came to me and this is my happy result.

I first stamped my sentiment and then placed a line of scor-tape above and below it and then added glitter.  This is the same glitter that is outlining my flower.  Isn't the flower just gorgeous!  I learned how to make these this Summer at the CK Convention.  My daughter and I took the class and we have been making them ever since.  The set is called Aztec Gold Sunflowers from Heartfelt Creations.  The flowers can be cut using a coordinating Spellbinders die.  I used Inka-Gold paste from Viva Decor (which despite the name, comes in a variety of colors) to color my flower and then used a stylus to shape it.

I hope you'll play along this week and upload your card(s) to the SCS gallery using the keyword CAS138.  I would love to see your take on this sketch!  ;)

Products Used:
Stamp Sets - Heartfelt Creations Aztec Gold Sunflowers; PTI Thing Big Favorites #3
Paper - PTI Vintage cream
