CAS Flourish Thanks So Much - OLW9 - Craft for Life Card

This card was made for Susan's One Layer Wednesday challenge - this week we were to use a flourish on a card. This gave me the perfect opportunity to ink up a stamp from my long neglected Inkadinkado Bold Damasks set. This card will be donated to the Craft for Life campaign to support Cancer Research UK.

I used SU! Confetti White CS and cut my A4 piece into half length ways and then scored at the halfway mark to get an A6 size landscape card with the fold on the left. I stamped the flourish in Spanish Olive chalk ink and the flowers in Perfect Plumeria chalk ink. The small flower stamp is from a Hero Arts clear alpha set. I thought the Plumeria was a great colour to match some of the flecks you find in the Confetti White CS - plus I do love a berry and green colour combo!

For the sentiment, I inked it up with my full size Perfect Plumeria ink pad but I wiped away the ink from the brackets and then inked those with my Olive teardrop shaped pad.

Stamps: Inkadinkado Bold Damasks clear set, Hero Arts Thank You Messages clear set, Hero Arts Designer Alphabet clear set
CS: SU! Confetti White
Ink: VersaMagic Spanish Olive & Perfect Plumeria chalk inks
