Simply Congratulations!

Hey & Happy Monday!

It's a dreary rainy day here, but I am in the studio today full of energy (for now) getting things prepared for the April Release this Friday. I'm also doing 2 classes at The Paperlane on Saturday (details HERE) and there is still one space left on the morning & 4 spaces left in the afternoon.

Anyway, I've a card to share with you all...

I used a couple of challenges to spark my mojo for this card. Firstly I used the current "Less is More" challenge HERE which is a colour challenge & the colour is turquoise.

And for the layout of my card I decided to use the current CAS(E) this Sketch! layout seen HERE and below...

I started out by stamping the flowers from Flower Power #1 in Hawaiian Shores ink onto my white card stock panel. I then stamped & heat embossed the Congratulations sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments #1 in white onto some vellum. Then I mounted the panel onto a turquoise panel and then a white card base.

Ok, I had better crack on and get some work done! I hope you will join me on the blog tomorrow as I share the Sneak Peeks of the April Release :) Until then, thank you for stopping by today.
