CAS Flourishes

I've just had my latest delivery from SU, so I've used my new set for this project. I am going to put it into two challenges

The first is Pals Paper Arts with
 this sketch,

and the second is CAS Colours and Sketches where they want a CAS
card with these colours.

Here is my card

I coloured the stamps with my Write Markers and stamped them onto white card using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the designs in the right place. I put the yellow card in an embossing folder in the Big Shot, and cut the circles and labels at the same time. I added a few cut out flowers to the circle and base design, and finished with some gems that I'd coloured with my markers.

Recipe :
Card = All white card, with some coloured with orange and sand inks
Stamps = Flowering Flourishes and Verve
Inks = Sahara Sand, Summer Starfruit, Dusty Durango, and Basic Black
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Fancy Fan SU EF
Extras = Gems and 3D pads

A very excited Nathan phoned me last night to tell me that he had been to his friends Birthday party, where he had seen his very good friend Adelaide. She had thanked him for his Valentine card, and told him that she had taken it to school for "Show and Tell", and everybody had been very impressed with it.

He has well and truly been bitten with the crafting bug, as I had spent hours with him on Friday making his Mothers Day card. What do you think?

Thanks for dropping by today, and I hope you can call back soon.
