Addicted to CAS

The lovely Sylvia is our hostess this week for our challenge at Addicted to CAS and she has chosen the following code word:


We are sponsored this week by STAMPlorations and I love their stamps and wanted to use them in my card. I was discussing the code word in secret with my crafting friend Nonni and I loved her suggestion of a colour wheel. However I was stuck of how to use this but I had a 'ping' moment when looking at images of colour wheels. I decided to make a flower colour wheel using one single leaf from the Eclectic Florals set from STAMPlorations. This is what I came up with:


As I don't have all the inks needed for the colour wheel I mixed up inks to get the colours. The top flower I covered with glossy accents for some shine.I thought the sentiment fitted my card perfectly.

Our team have some great cards to inspire you, take a look here. This challenge the super talented  Karen has joined us and here card I am sure will inspire you!

I am going to enter this into the 'lucky' challenge at CASology as I am sending this to a very special someone that I feel lucky and blessed to have in my life.

I will also enter it into the 'ovals' challenge at CAS-ual Fridays as my leaf I used to make up the flower id oval shaped.

Have a happy, stamping weekend x
