10 Minute CAS Card- Color Challenge plus a Sketch!

Hi again Stampers!            
I wanted to participate in a few challenges and chose to create a card using this week's CTS#14 CAS(E) this Sketch! and the colors from this week's CCMC238 Create with Connie and Mary Challenge.  This is the first time I have been able to participate at the CAS(E) this Sketch! blog and if you have not visited either one of these sites yet, take a few minutes to check them out!!  Great ideas and so much inspiration!!

Clean and Simple (CAS) cards are a bit more difficult for me- not sure why because they should be simple, right?  They are quick to assemble once I decide on the design, but I always have to restrain myself from "overworking" them with sponging, distressing and embellishments :-)  I truly admire those who are so creative with the CAS style :-)

This card only took ten minutes to create since I was able to incorporate a few scraps that were already embossed- love being able to pull a card together using scraps :-)

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™ with the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock and adhere this to a piece of Island Indigo.

Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White with Island Indigo Classic Ink and adhere to the embossed Island Indigo strip (using the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder).

Ink the smooth side of the interior the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder with Calypso Coral Classic Ink and emboss a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock.  Punch out the flower using the Blossom Punch and add the stamped center created from the medium medallion stamp in Lacy & Lovely. 

Add the Lucky Limeade leaves and pearl center to the flower to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Lacy & Lovely, Teeny Tiny Wishes

 Ink: Calypso Coral, Island Indigo

Paper:  Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Island Indigo

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders- Elegant Lines, Fancy Fan, Lacy Brocade; Punches- Bird Builder, 1 ¼” Circle, 1 3/8” Circle, Blossom; Pearl

Thanks again for visiting- have a wonderful week crafting and loving your Valentine!
