CAS on Friday Guest Designer...May You Find Comfort & Peace

I am so happy to be posting today as a Guest Designer at CAS on Friday because I was the winner of a previous challenge with this card.

The challenge this week is to Use Your Favorite Flower Stamp.  I have so many flower stamps, and many of them are my favorites....what to choose.....  I decided to use PTI Year of Flowers Gladiolus.  It is one of my favorites, and quite old and well loved.  It hasn't seen ink for a while, so that is how I chose it.

This card is so very simple.  I stamped the large flower image slightly off the page, and then colored it with Copic markers.  I used a sentiment from The Greetery Cotton Comforts, and cut and popped up one bit of the sentiment, just to give the card a little bit of dimension and texture.  That is it....Clean and Simple.  I made it a sympathy card, as those seem to be in most demand these days, unfortunately.

I hope you will play along with CAS on Friday.  I look forward to seeing everyone's favorite flower stamps.

I am also entering this card at AAA Cards #164: One Image with optional twist Inspired by TV (remember all those fabulous gardening and landscaping shows in the early days of HGTV?),  Retro Rubber #133: Anything Goes (I think I've had this stamp for 8 years or so), and Addicted to Stamps and More #387: Make Your Mark.

Stay Safe and Wash Your Hands!
