CAS Flower Note For You

Today's CAS challenge on Splitcoast Stampers was to follow a sketch based on a card Krystie Lee made. Click here to visit the CAS challenge thread.

I stamped the flower and leaves and cut them out. The leaves are glued flat but I've popped up the flower with 3d foam pads. I used square Nestie dies for my mat and layer.

The patterned paper is from the gorgeous My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow collection - as is the sheer ribbon. I was so happy to find inks that went with the paper - and delighted to find the metal embellishment that I put in the centre of the flower. You just never know when a long hoarded embellishment from a pack in your stash will be just the perfect thing!
