Mimosa with Tulip CAS Challenge



I am trying my hand at Clean and Simple. I always admire CAS cards when I see them, but haven't focused on that style. Donna Mikasa is the queen of CAS and she is my idol! This is a stamp from Bild, a Swedish company, titled Mimosa with Tulip. I've had it for awhile, but this is it's first time seeing ink!

I did the embossed bg with a Sissix texture folder. The text is from a book called The Joy of Words, which came tinted in pink!

The little tag is my New Favorite Thing from MFT, notched tag and stamp set. What a fun die!!



I am entering this card in the Cas-Ual Friday challenge which required CAS and using text in some way.

And, by the way, Happy Mother's Day to everyone! We are going to dinner tonight to avoid the crowds tomorrow! All the children came through with cards, letters, flowers and gift cards. What a great week-end. I am stamping my heart out!

Thanks for stopping by!

Ok! See it now! Did you re-post? You lost the earlier comments. Maybe they'll return now that they can see it. We all can see it! It's adorable, Judy! The gingham ribbon is the perfect touch!
