I have a few birthdays coming up shortly. I made this one for my mum. She will be 86 next month and she's had a pretty tough time lately. Hopefully this will put a smile on her face.
I've been wanting to use my Simple Sprig Roses for ages now - I don't think they've had an outing in 5 years! I even found a small circular punch for the smaller rose about 4 years ago and it's been languishing as well.
This card was inspired by the current code word for Addicted to CAS
I was racking my brain over what constituted a grid (I even googled it) and then went through my stamps and dies to see what I had that would work with this theme. This tartan die was a very recent acquisition and it certainly met all the criteria of a grid! And I could think of nothing better to team with a tartan backdrop than these roses in the style of Scotland's famous designer Rennie Mackintosh.
I struggle with CAS. I'm always attracted to the CAS challenges and I find them a wonderful source for inspiration, but I'm never sure if my cards are CAS enough.
I'm entering this card in a couple of challenges. The Addicted to Stamps Challenge has the following photo inspiration and my eye was instantly drawn to the chair back which reminded me of a grid no doubt because I had that Code Word already in my head.
The As You See It Challenge has the following prompt, and as this stamp set is aptly name Simple Sprig I thought it would qualify - I've been meaning to enter their challenges for ages!!!
Finally Simon Says Wednesday Challenge has an Anything Goes Challenge this week - yippee!
Thanks for stopping by, especially if you take the time to leave a comment. Your kind words will make my day!!!
