CAS

  All week, I have been trying to make a card for this week's  CAS-ual Friday's sketch challenge.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do, but spent too much time either creating my card for PTI's Blog Hop or hopping on the blog commenting on everyone's beautiful cards.
Here's the sketch.




   Needless to say, I missed the deadline. I have a hard time getting good pictures with artificial light. I had to take the photo today with daylight.  Maybe that will teach me. The card is for my future daughter-in-law's bridal shower. Keeping with the theme of the invitation and set of notecards I made her, this is the card I created.


 Here's a close up of the peonies. The one in the forefront is propped up with dimensionals.


   Thanks for peeking. I am off to start a crafting project for my son-in-law who is going to be participating in the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati on May 6th.

What a pretty card. I just got that set, and am so excited to be able to make a card like that now, too. I have done exactly what you have done, before--finished a card after the challenge. Well, at least you have a beautiful card.

Very pretty. That's a bummer that you missed the deadline. I've done that a couple of times too.

Carol this is gorgeous! Oh how i wish I would have bought this set. I love the fresh clean elegant look of your card. Sorry this one missed the deadline. Dare I ask what a Flying Pig Marathon is :)

Such a fabulous card! I can't believe you took the time to fussy cut those flowers, but they are just so beautiful. Thank you for you sweet comments on my blog too!

This is such a lovely, CAS design. I love how you've tucked the sentiment into the frame and softly colored the peonies. So fresh and clean!
