Today’s Waltzingmouse sketch is another fun one. Some embossing, a sentiment panel and BAM, you are done. I am starting to get the hang of CAS cards. They are still not easy for me, but they are getting easier.

For this card I used the Teeny Trees stamp set. Ever since I got that set, I was itching to try out the circles as a background. I stamped several in Shabby Shutter, Wild Honey and Tumbled Glass Distress inks on the lower half of a regular size Solar White card base.

The lower corners of the card were rounded before 2/3rd of the card front were embossed with Tim’s Retro Circle Embossing Folder.

A 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of MME Fine and Dandy patterned paper was adhered above the embossing and two brown brads were added.

The sentiment was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with Classic Circle Nestabilities. The layer was adhered to a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Parisian Accent die.

I stamped another small circle image in Tumbled class, cut it out and adhered leaves stamped in Shabby Shutter under them. The flower was adhered to the upper left hand side of the sentiment panel to finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and smiles
