PDCC96 and CPS 233

Today has been one of those leisurely days at our house where everyone is occupied and happy. That means I've had a little bit of time to be crafty during daylight hours, which is a change for me! For this card, I combined the sketch at Card Positioning Systems with the colors at Play Date Cafe.



For the focal point I used some flowers by Recollections that I picked up at Michaels. I used a Sizzix leaf die cut for the two elements on either side of the flower and a Nestie as the square background element. I couldn't decide if I wanted a sentiment or not, so I tried it both ways. I'm still undecided, although I'm leaning toward the card with the sentiment. :)



Supplies:
Paper: PTI vintage cream, green from stash
Stamps: PTI sentiment
Ink: Versamagic gingerbread
Others: Recollections flower, button from stash, Sizzix die

Great CAS card...pretty flower!

I love both cards...the flower is so soft and gentle surrounded by those beautiful leaves. I think the sentiment works well because of the sweet way you have tucked it in!
