Quick CAS

Sometimes you just need a quick card - if you are like me, you think you have a card made for a gift, but then minutes before you are to leave you realize ooops, I need a card!
This one is super fast.  I only had minutes to spare. 
I am using the CPS sketch #157 and combining it with the Verve Spring Fling release challenge #1 to make a CAS card with a flower on it.  I created my own flower using Verve's Thankful Accents. 

No, your eyes are not seeing things, I am using green and orange again.   I think I need to take the bag of green & orange buttons and hide it from myself.  I see that bag and want to use every button in it!
Oh, and that is real sunshine in this photo.  I have never been so happy to see the sun :>)  Today, my daughter's GS troop was doing a cookie booth sale and the thought of standing outside for hours in 20 degree weather was not appealing!!!  It was over 40 degrees today - hooray!

Details:  Stamp Set - Verve Thankful Accents, CS - SU Whisper White, Ink - SU Old Olive, Really Rust and Blue Bayou, Foof-a-la button and embroidery floss.

  5. This is gorgeous Julie! You used your Verve stamps beautifully! Thank you so much for playing along!

  6. Fantastic CAS card! I stood in the 30 degree cold for a GS cookie booth...twice! Both my girls are in GS. The first 2 hour booth I did we watched the temperature drop from 43 down into the 30's. My toes were frozen! I had another booth the next day and was so happy the sun was out and then it went away and I froze again! LOL

  7. Gorgeous card!!

  8. Hey Julie! Thanks for entering the Olympics of Stamping challenge in the Moxie Fab World! :)

  9. Such a great CAS card! Don't you just love when you do one and it turns out just how you wanted??? Love the green/orange combo too - reminds me of marigolds all summer long!
