I started with a tent fold of PTI's New Leaf card stock and added a strip of white scalloped card stock, die cut with PTI's Small Scallop. The stitched rectangle came from PTI's Noted: Scalloped A2 collection, and I stamped it with a lily of the valley from PTI's Year of Flowers Collection set. I colored the lily leaves with my new Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers (LG2 and LG4), and added some white Wink of Stella to the blossoms just to make them stand out from the white base a bit. I popped the rectangle up with some dimensional foam (horrible shadow from late night photography...), and finished the card off with some little rhinestones I had in my stash. Thanks for visiting!

Hello and welcome! While I've played along with a couple CAS Colour Challenges, I believe this is my first CAS Sketch challenge. I really liked the simplicity of the design and the challenge to incorporate some bling--definitely out of my comfort zone and hence the challenge!

Hello! This is my first time playing along with one of Paper Smooches' challenges and I'm pretty excited! The challenge theme for April is "showers." My eye was immediately drawn to the bright, colorful rainbow behind the raindrops in this photo...which is how I hope to see life as well :) Always working on that...
For my card, I mainly used Paper Smooches' Rainbow Dies and Spectrum Stamp and Die Set. I set the background with some rainbow patterned paper from my stash, adhered to a white card base, and then topped it with an ink-splattered panel. The sun and clouds were die cut from the Spectrum set, and given a bit of shimmer with my Wink of Stella pens (clear and white). I used the Rainbow dies and various scraps of card stock for the rainbow, which was also treated to a glaze of clear shimmer. To finish it off, I stamped a sentiment from Little Yellow Bicycles' Faith set.
Thanks for stopping by! I'm also entering this in CAS-ual Fridays CFC #171 challenge.
