CAS Get Well Card

Hello, and welcome!

We've had a very spring-like day today......white fluffy clouds in  a beautiful blue sky, bright sunshine and a warm (ish) breeze.  The temperatures have bottomed again,  now it's after dark, but it was a very pleasant day, all the same.......might be able to hang out some washing if this keeps up, lol.

It's another Challenge day at Perfect Sentiments so here are the deets......

PSC68: CAS Get Well
Create a clean and simple get well card. Don't forget to include your sentiment on the front. 

Our Sponsor

will award one lucky random winner a $10 Gift Voucher to their store!

This was definitely a challenge for  me!  I love to pile on the layers and the fripperies, so making a CAS creation does not come naturally......but, I girded my loins, took a few deep breaths and........
here's my result........
I used a Docrafts scalloped card base and placed a piece of freebie paper as the background......

The image (Framed Flowers) is coloured up with Promarkers and mounted onto a piece of lime green Bazzil Textures card which I'd cut with a scalloped rectangle Spellbinder's  die......I added some sparkle to the flowers with a Sakura clear sparkle pen.....I typed the sentiment on the ol' 'puter and added it to the image before printing off.....

I punched the sweet butterfly with a really old hand punch....the paper is a scrap from "the scrap mountain", and I added more sparkle.....popped it up with a pop-dot.......

Love a bit of sparkle!

Very Clean and Simple,  methinks......
Not really that hard for me to do, and actually seemed to take as much time as my usual more over-the-top tastefully embellished offerings...hahaa!

Your turn!....pop over to see what the fabby Design Team has been doing.....lots of very lovely creations to get your creating mojos up 'n' running!
