The blog hop at PTI this month is all about flowers. I made several cards using Year of the Flowers: Lily of the Valley. I am a clean and simple kind of girl, so my cards don't have a lot of frills and layers. I think the beauty of this image speaks for itself.
I chose a bright happy pink for my first card. I stamped in Memento Rose Bud and used Raspberry Fizz as the card base. I added some glitter to each lily for a little sparkle. I think it adds a little extra touch to a CAS card. The first has just a touch of sparkle on the underside of each flower, and on the second I went a little crazy and really glittered it up.
I also wanted to make a sympathy card for Make it Monday, so I switched to a deep purple card base. I couldn't decide if bling was fitting for a sympathy card, but my rhinestones were a very subdued purple color and I thought they looked tasteful, so I added them in the end.
I am also submitting my cards to CAS-ual Fridays, a new CAS challenge blog I've been wanting to participate in. Since my cards got blinged up a bit with glitter and rhinestones, I think they'll work for CFC #3: Bring the Bling!
